On the Continent, a Air Corps Ground Crewman of some capacity poses in Netted Steel Helmet late 1944. Seems to have a Shoulder Holster but wears it around his waist??? can't tell.

Yes, shoulder holster worn "cowboy" style. Looks like possible P38 or shoulder holster made for 45. Has the spare mag pocket on the holster. Not an issue holster but one theatre made.

Coast Guardsmen Edward O. Donovan, photographer's mate second class (below), of Suffolk, Mass. and Paul A. Queenan, photographer's mate second class, of Brookline Mass., don't always have time for this kind of monkey business. Serving with the Coast Guard in the Pacific, they are making a photographic record of activities in advanced combat zones where American fighting men are blasting the Japanese out of island strongholds.
