Hi!

 

Today I got this P41 lower pack.

Can you maybe help me with the markings? What could they mean?

 

There are also a few names on it.

Is there another good research site for US personnel beside "wwii Memorial"?

 

The pack was modified with an OD #7 long shoulder strap and was repaired with a USMC poncho I think.

 

Best regards,

Lukas

Wow, thank you very much! :)

 

The second name I can read is "Bilicki" but I can't figure out the initials after the name.

Is it also possible for you to find out which Bilicki the pack belonged to?

 

Best regards,

Lukas
