USMC camo 'Rigger' Field Gear


Recommended Posts

  • 1 year later...

Camopara, I don't know that the bazooka carriers were necessarily a rigger-made item; mine is in mint condition, and has a green 1943 dated cardboard Marine Corps cutter tag stapled to the flap. Could be that some were made in the field early on by some Rocket Platoon members, then more were reqested from the Quartermaster by the C.O.s. On that note, I've been told by a Curator at the Quantico Museum of a late '43 field requisition order that he read which asked for camouflaged M-2 ammo vests for better concealment of mostar crews. A friend of mine in Texas had one at one time, but had sold it by the time I got wind of it crying.gif

 

Lot of neat stuff out there!

Support our troops...abandoning the War on Terror is not an affordable luxury.

I'm so old, I still call W.W.II U.S. militaria "war surplus".

You may have found that first aid pouch in your attic but it was made by one of the best...Phil Hughes of Georgia, at my request. Shovel covers too. I sold them at the SOS about 5 years ago. Still have some.
