Here are several photographs of a U. S. Army WW II backpack assembly, which came out of a duffle bag of WW II items. Seems to be in relatively good condition.
enjoy

    Looks like the GI liberated a German pouch along the way. I wonder what he kept in it - Compass? Cigarettes? We can only imagine, but I'm sure it served a purpose for this individual, and makes the whole set more interesting.

    I always have liked wartime web gear because it can show some individuality based on needs, preferences or experiences.

    During my service time, I remember a few ambush veterans who liked to carry an extra ammo pouch or two!

    thank you Chrisnp and scottvez
    One of the most important things I carried overseas was a p-38. It was a lot easier to open those cans with then using a knife or hitting a screwdriver with a hammer! Remenber those AWFUL powdered eggs, just add warm water, they looked like OD Green cottage cheese.
