Hello ArchangelDM. Sorry about poaching your post, but I think that you can help me with identifying M-1936 suspenders. Your comment about the set in your post having flat buckles seems to suggest that they are USMC. Are the flat buckles ID'd only to the USMC? Attached are pics of two sets that I have. One has flat buckles, with the metal end pieces on the adjustment straps rounded, while the other set has rounded buckles with squared end pieces. Thanks in advance for any info.

I think everything looks fine. I am not knowledgeable on the shovel cover though. The canteen cover is killer!
