Inc.  Group 1 'Red' pack for the quick attachable chest type parachute harness.  Olive drab cotton duck material with a single heavy webbing grab handle.  In use would have a red painted patch on the ripcord flap to indicate that this is a Group 1 pack, complete with cadmium plated snap hooks for attaching to loops on the harness.  Complete with correct ripcord handle/ripcord and three bungees.  The pack itself is empty and was packed out for photography purposes only.  The pack appears to be unissued, is generally very clean and has no signs of wear and tear.  The AN6513-1 was produced between 1942 and 1944 when it was superceded by the AN-6513-1A.  It is characterised by the unusual square shaped pack and is considerably rarer to find than most other types.  Excellent condition.  Stock code S21951.
