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.

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

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 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'.
