What’s good, all?

I have been piecing together some gear for my 1943 Underwood M1 carbine over the past couple months. Check it out:



All original WW2 era except the Ka-Bar knife and sheath, which are new. You can actually get original WW2 surplus in good condition for as cheap or cheaper than the good quality U.S. made repros so that’s the route I went with. I modded the image to make it look all old times and such. Thanks all,

Pretty cool and still effective kit, even today.

What’s the dangler pouch to the right of the knife?

I agree. In the Air Force we’re still issued almost the exact same style belt and canteen except its nylon/plastic instead of cotton and stainless steel for the WW2 ones. This is mainly for use with a gas mask as the canteen has a piece that interfaces with a drinking tube in the mask, allowing one to hydrate.

The small pouch is a first aid pouch, and holds a small green tin with a Carlisle bandage inside. Here’s a dude opening one:

Just need some M41 suspenders and you'll have a nice USMC rig.
