You are both correct. The French chap I bought it from says it is a dual purpose item with one of two pieces that covers MG and items on the horse drawn cart. It is also used for single configuration as protection from the elements but allows for immediate use in an emergency. It’s ‘baggy’ enough to cover a belt and ammo box and attached by small rope that if tugged becomes undone. In a hurry just keep firing whilst some gunner undoes, or cuts and rips off!!! It is marked but I have also send images to Paris to see what they can find in their museum records. it also smells great
