  1. I thought I had remembered the M1936 bag from my dad's pictures. This is his "junk on the bunk" picture from Korea in 1954. He was Air Force so that explains some of it but it wasn't the M36. The pack is the M1944 Cargo pack (unmodified) and the suspenders are the improved M1936 late was issue. He was armed with an M1 Carbine and by the looks of it a "stock" pouch. Tim
  2. I picked up the Saudi canteen cover and ALICE pack. They are U.S. made with a DSA contract of 1976. I wouldn't think these were used by U.S. troops in the kingdom but you never know. Tim
  3. Very interesting post. I don't recall hearing his name or the companies name in regards to the development of the LINCOE pack. You should contact sgtmonroe. He is the resident expert on the LINCLOE trials. Tim
  4. I think this pack is part of a survival kit. The rifle serial number would be for the M6? Rifle in the kit. Tim
  5. I know this is out of the date range for this post but I couldn't resist. I've seen original WW1 photos of gear inspections where you can make out the "Pro-phy-lac-tic" brand name on the tooth brush handle. I found this one years ago in it's original 1915 dated box. Tim
  6. "I dont really collect canteens".......yeah, me neither Ronnie.
  7. What a beautiful belt! I posted one of these a while ago but it's not in the greatest condition. http://www.usmilitariaforum.com/forums/index.php?/topic/290556-m-1923-mounted-cartridge-belt-1949-dated/?hl=%2Bmounted+%2B1949 I have since removed the extra pocket. I picked up a 1917 dated version as well. Here is my 1949, 1941 and 1917 dated belts. Tim
  8. Standard LC-2 canteen cover. The earliest example I have marked LC-2 is 1976. Tim
  9. The standard M1910 covers dated 1944 are out there. I think AIRTRESS MIDLAND is the only manufacturer that I have seen. Tim
  10. I've had a few over the years, all made by "LUB. PROD CO." I would say they are tough to find and usually in fairly used condition. Tim
  11. Thanks for all the comments. In answer to this question the frame was designed from the beginning to be used with the pack or by itself as a packboard. The problem with the lightweight rucksack frame was that it was curved and it took time to remove the pack if the frame was to be used by itself. I have to say removing the pack from the frame is very simple and quick. In the end they felt it was a little to complicated and, I assume, they were worried about rough field use. Tim
