  1. This is a pair of WW2 USMC socks in new condition. Note the size printed on the toe.
  2. Jim, thanks for posting this. Is it something you just discovered or have you had it for a while?
  3. I'm having the same problem and haven't found an answer yet. I suspect there are several others too. Maybe someone will ring in with a solution.
  4. This P41 shirt is marked in a similar fashion except it is used by a SEABEE. This particular shirt is in the CB Museum.
  5. Will you please post a copy of the rate in the RANK & RATES SECTION. I don't think that rate has been posted previously. Thanks!
  6. Can you post better photos of the butt pack in the Field Gear Section please. A good clear front, back, interior and any labels would be great. Thanks!
  7. I bought most of mine in the 70's and 80's. You could find them new for a couple of bucks if you really looked close at shows. I think I paid $10 for my UK made in new condition.
  8. You guys just made my day with the prices quoted. I have 20 or 30 of them and didn't pay more than $5.00 for any of them. Most are in new condition too.
  9. The Musette type pack is commercial and intended as a child's school book bag. It was probably made in Japan. Look inside for a sewn in white cloth tag that has probably been cut off. These were available at K-Mart and Wal-Mart in the late 70's or early 80's IIRC. I'm not sure about the Mountain Pack frame. It may have been an experimental item or may have been made up by a surplus dealer. The leather pocket at the top of the frame is normally attached to the pack rather than the frame. It usually has two web straps sewn to the top flap of the pack. The leather piece is a pocket that slide
  10. Here is another type. It is Manhattan - Peerless that has had a Nathan label added since it is part of a Nathan Hygiene Kit from the WW1 period. I actually have two slightly different Nathan kits combined in one set of photos so I will add them all.
  11. This may be a bit off course from your question but it does help to understand the usage. The universal slings were used for many different bags, not just Musette bags. You will find the slings with two D rings or two snap hooks or one D ring and one snap hook. You will find various bags with the opposite set of D rings and snap hooks to match up with this mix of slings. The one place I know that all three combinations were used is the Universal Ammo Cases. I have received these Ammo Cases in new condition that have the slings folded and tucked inside. Some of the slings have been made
