If I remember well these are Normandy invasion stripes. Read about it a month or 2 ago. Must look it up.

Nice bag 👍🏻

Infact it is the Preparation for Overseas Movement code (POM). This was used by the US Army to ease the shipping of items/ equipment/.... everything was put by color code.

Every unit had a 5 digit code. The colors represent a cypher (0 - 9).
So the last digit matches the cypher of the middle color and the next to last digit matches the first and last color.

So in your case it means de 5 digit unit code ends with 40 ( dark brown = 0 and bright green = 4

Isn’t there a 5 digit code on the bag? So maybe I can track the unit.
This must be at company level so yours will be the HQ company of somee unit.
