....and everything I have collected this year.

 

Still looking for a compass pouch & shovel cover. Also I have found out there is another pattern bag, pistol belt and ammo pouches. Still looking for clips too.

 

If anyone has any of these items for sale please contact me.

VERY COOL items you guys have. I bought a canteen with the 11 on on it about 2 years ago. All this time I figured a boy scout or somebody colored the black square in. HAHAHA! Now I see I was wrong.

Picked up a mint small ammo pouch from Ebay last month. Was actually listed here but I never saw it. This ones about as nice as they come. Still looking for a compass pouch, shovel cover and a few spare clips.

Everything so far. ALL pieces marked QMC EX-54. Need another small pouch in same condition that has the long strap to attach to the suspenders in front. Also a Compass pouch. Shovel cover would be nice but not as important as finding the compass pouch.

Bonjour crassou54

 

These are somewhat difficult to find. They do pop up now and again. One just needs to search often.

Finally.....a shovel cover.  Found this on FB outta Canada.  Looks un issued.  Now for a Compass Pouch.  I think thats the last piece Im looking for?

Anyone have a spare? ;)

FINALLY! The elusive Compass/Bandage pouch.  I never thought Id find one. I find it odd that there's no QMC above the EX 54- 1 markings?  Perhaps the pouch is too small?  I have everything now, sans different versions, except for the Sleeping Bag Carrier.

Here's my whole set up.  Everything is Mint/Near Mint.  Seems thats how most of these pieces show up though.

Its hard to get good pics of everything assembled.  If anyone wants individual pics I will separate them and photograph everything separately 

 

Also Im looking for a minty '56 canteen & cup for the canteen cover anyone can help?

Wow! Congrats on assembling the whole set! Not too familiar with this equipment. What is that horizontal leather strap on the ammo punches for?

Beautiful! That's only the third one I've seen. It's an amazing feeling when you finally get all the parts. Congrats, that is a nice set.
