US Army Medical Department Individual Equipment
TR 405-95 June 4, 1932

This is the "new" design medical equipment that was in use until the start of WW2. It was modified during the war but can still be compared to the early version.

Many of the early bags were taken in and refitted with the newer strap and hardwear for the flap.

The lace in inserts for the bags, it shows three different types, I only knew about two. There is one with loops for the black bakeolite pill bottles, one with three sections, for what I don't know, now what does the third one look like, can't tell from the pictures. Also which insert goes with each name listed?

M1912 Pistol Belt for Medics, Artu is that correct? With no female press stud for the mag pouch. I feel another DOH moment coming on.

Craig was the M1910 handaxe still issued as part of the WW2 medics kit?

The story of this belt is quite funny. A forum buddy was looking for a pre WWI M1912 snapless for his Pancho Villa trip so, helping him in the hunt, I spotted this one on ebay (it looked pea green and not khaki) and gave him the info. My Buddy, very busy for job, forgot to bid on it and another guy got it for 25$.
At this point I wrote to the winner telling him I couldn't bid on this belt because the seller stated "US only" but I would have bid 50$ on it and I would be happy to give him that sum for the belt. The guy couldn't resist the idea to double immediatly his investment and said OK. When the belt arrive in Italy (I couldn't tell seller to ship it in Arizona to buddy) I had notice that it wasn't a Mills pea green
pre WWI but simply a khaki snapless m1912. I asked buddy if this could be OK for him otherwise I would be glad to put it in my collection. Of course he wanted a genuine pre WWI. I have already seen a couple of these khaki snapless, one in France and another on MCF but at those times the theory was they were "rejected" belts cause worker forgot the snap.
I posted this pic on MCF asking if someone could add something about and telling, for joke, that maybe this belt was made for people who didn't need a gun, maybe medical personnel. Well Craig got the idea to look into this manual and found that the pistol belt for medics didn't have the magazine snap. That's all.

I passed one up at a militaria fair then curiosity got the better of me and went back and brought it for 20 ($40), had it for a while and it never saw the light of day and finally convinced myself that I had brought a factory reject or fake I GAVE IT AWAY. Oh for the power of knowledge.

I would like to add my WWI Medical officers belts to the post. I have two Mills manufactured belts one with lift dots and one with eagle snaps. So the often asked question which is earlier lift-dots or eagle snaps ? Well in this instance it's the lift-dots ' Jan 1918', and the eagle snaps ' May 1918'. the lift dot one has a soldiers name inside the belt ' Clyde E. Shedd'.
