Just got this sling in. Marked S.S.H. or S.S.M. LTD. 1942. Who is the maker of this sling?

Thanks, Scott

Cool. Thanks!

Looks like they were mainly a tent and accessory maker.

You have something that is very unique there in that you do not see that particular marking on a sling.  While not completely rare, still unique...

That's cool. Thanks!

I just asked for one marked with 1942 and this is what they sent me.
