One of my favorite things to collect is Marine Corps stuff from WWII, specifically Usmc packs. For the pack couple of months I've tried to buy as many Marine corps packs I could, and I think I have enough to show fellow forum members, and be proud of all of em. First photo is a family photo of some of the packs that I have.

This pack comes with a P3 canteen cover all named to W.E Jones, this is the same pack pictured in the middle of the first photo.

Pack named to SGT. Herbert J. Who was killed on Iwo Jima, he was in the 4th Marine Division and was killed on the first day of the landing, his grave can be found in Salem Oregon.

The pack named to Herbert J, interesting enough, is that the pack is also named to three other Marines, that I could not research, most likely in the 4th Marine Division as well

And my absolute favorite, a Camo D ring most likely named to a Marine of the 1st Marine Div who fought on New Britain

Glad that one found a nice home that appreciates it. I think I had a moment of temporary insanity back then.... Lol....
