During the early 1930’s, a new bread-bag of Greek design was issued to the H.A.. That bag (modified from the French Mle.1892 Musette), was easier to adjust (with a simpler cross strap length-adjust slider and two more buttons providing extra carriage capacity). The heavy fabric used to manufacture bread-bags issued to the H.A., varied in weight, texture and shade of colour (from brownish to greenish khaki). Those bread-bags were utilised by the Greek troops to carry their kouramana (κουραμάνα=army bread) rations, as well as extra ammunition pouches (for magazines and grenades). During the War of 1940-1914, carrying two bread-bags was common practice at the front-line.
