This stamp is identical to another pair of M43's I own - ID'd to a James Kennedy F/502

mdk0911. I like your avatar picture. He was a very dear and close friend of mine. My avatar is his original ID card.

Very Nice set of pants Tom! Well done. Let me see if I can find anything for you about your 'Trooper on this end.
Thanks a lot, Jake. I'm planning on bringing them to the SOS. The leg ties look like ties on an ID'd set of M42's (except the ties on those are khaki - not OD). I used to own a set of ID'd M43's named to an 82nd fellow and the ties on those were the same as the cargo pocket material...
Might these be 101st?
Have a Merry Christmas Jake!

Nice looking 43 pants.Very possible 101st.I have a set from a 506th vet.They still have cutters tags on them.Modified with leg pockets and also knee re-inforcements.The tapes are the same material on mine.
Have a few smaller items from a 327th Officer..The items included some of the green tape webbing like on the trousers ties.I guess he removed this from a set of his trousers.
Looking at the material its the same as the long ties used on the wool sleeping bags.

I was really hopeful on IDing these, as I've been very successful in the past. I have a few "possible" IDs, but nothing positive yet.

34788730 HIGGINBOTHAM#ANDREW#J#SR 513th
From what I can tell, the "Thunder From Heaven" book has him listed as a member of the 513th. That's all. Now the quest for additional information. Anyone help me locate some more info on him?
