Thanks for your reply Chip. I should add that the only picture I've seen of a M15 Tasche showed that neither side had a buttoned closure strap or buttons.

Front interior of the bag. Notice that the button closure flap looks like it was hand stitched on (like the D ring straps) and not added during manufacturing.
