Also how do you attach the kabar to the belt? I just taped mine on but I'm sure that it wouldn't last in the rain

well in the photo of the MGguy in Hue city, you can see its just toucked behind the .45 holster.....but I think you can slip it in the belt ..........

My kabar sheath isn't big enough to slip onto the belt. Any ideas how to keep it on?

funny thing ......my Boss (who was in Nam with the 9th) said he had his KaBar but always had it in his pack...he only had the bayo on the rigg......I suggest to tuck it behind an ammo pouch....

Bought.....but added the helmet stand at the neck base-...some are made out of Styrofoam and others of fiberglass....

I was also wondering, if marines weren't useing the 3 cell grenade pouch, we're would they keep their grenades? Since m61 pouches can't carry grenades, would they have been carried in pockets, or clipped on suspenders or something like that?
