Here's one that I dug out of the closet. It belonged to Sgt. George L. Forrester, 907th Ordnance Co. Note that all the cloth insignia except for the stripes are bullion.

A spare mannequin happened by, which enabled me to properly mount the uniform of DSC recipient Maj. Arthur Ernest Exon, later Brig. Gen.

Here is another Navy grouping provided by fellow Forum member Jay with my thanks. Rank insignia have been added to show his commissioned time.

After clearing out all my medical related items, I replaced them with an assortment of .45 cal pistol related items. The web belt grouping to include the mag pouch, canteen, holster, and first aide pouch are all dated 1942. The mag pouch with double closures is a British made WWII specimen identical to the WWI version. Note the variations of the .45 holsters.

The .45 shown was obtained from a local collector. The pistol was obtained from a classmate. It belonged to his father. I have another .45. in virtually mint condition (he only fired one round through it) obtained from a local Vet. I have a number of weapons, mostly obtained from local Vets. Jack

This is a temporary display in progress. The metal piece partially shown at the top is a vehicle carrier for a M-1 rifle or BAR. The cartridge belt is with eagle snaps. The flat piece next to the rifle bolt pouch is a personnel flotation device. The elongated pouch next to it is a pouch for a rifle scope.
