Hi all, any help in identifying these two pieces of WWII gear would be most appreciated. The first is marked US Champion canvas supplies 1943. The other piece doesn't have any markings.

The suspenders are more likely dated 1945.Look original to me and were the type used with the late war M44/45 pack sets.

 

Not really sure what the other item is unless its a drag chute of some type made of canvas.

Doyler you are right. I looked at the suspenders more closely and they are dated 1945.

Greetings,

 

I think the bag it part of a canvas repair kit to hold different size parts of grommets..
