Vintage brass military or naval kit bag lock, ’D’-shaped with hinged opening and heart-shaped padlock, which is inscribed ‘SECURE’ and with an anchor to the key hole cover, possibly a maker’s mark.
Military canvas kit bags had brass rings around the top, enabling the lock to be threaded through and then padlocked for security.
English, circa 1890 - 1920
