Canadian WW2 `housewife` Dutch Indies re-used
Nice and extremely complete WW2 Canadian “Housewife” sewing kit. The kit is stamped SS Holden LTD Ottawa Canada. On top of that it is MvO stamped Ministerie van Oorlog. So this Canadian set was re-used in the conflict between the Netherlands and Indonesia. The set has the standard items plus a lot of extra’s all period correct. Nice touch is the ribbon with initials of the owner of the sewing kit. Great for restoring old uniforms or as display item.
