Aloha Everyone,


A couple of photos circa June 1941 taken at Waianae on maneuvers.  55th CAC (AA) based at Fort Kamehameha, T.H.


The first is a doggie in profile with his gear on.  The second shows a BAR ammo bearer/gunner with his sidearm.  In the first photo, are those Medical Kits?  If they are, I don't see a yoke.  I've also attached a photo of a medical kit display, also from the 55th CAC (AA) at Ft. Kamehameha, which shows a different clasp on the medical kit bags.

Now those pictures are cool! Always a big fan of the layouts, they tell such a story.
