If it was original you would think it would have a stores number on it somewhere. The colour looks a bit dark.

It almost looks like a repro sold by Sentimental Journey:

It looks like the repro version to me . The colour is too dark .

The original canvas radio items are rare. A few years back, a local militaria dealer found a treasure trove of original covers for the Aust. WS 108 . In perfect condition.

Default covers, waterproof WS19

Hi Guys,
looks OK to me, US and Canadian covers were that shade. Best thing to do is ask the seller for an image of the inside of the front cover, there should be a ZA or PC number there.
Chers,
Dave

That is the exact type (color etc) that are in my WS 19 Sherman installation kits from 44. If I remember correctly I do not think mine have any markings in them.

The carrier he was selling brought a good price. I bid it up to about $230 then quit.

The carrier isn't a very hard thing to make . A friend of mine in Adelaide had a batch of them made to resell . I think he still has quite a few available .
