SKU: 25156


U.S. Infantryman Walking, Winter 1944-45

The cost of replacing a soldier’s equipment is high and so it is apportioned in phases: front-line troops receiving the new equipment first, support units receiving equipment as the older wears out. Because of this, U.S. soldiers in World War II went to war using several different versions of the basic load bearing gear. This soldier is traveling light. Around his waist is a M1923 cartridge belt with 10 canvas pockets to hold eight-round en bloc clips for the M1 Garand. Metal grommets around the bottom of the belt could attach to more equipment, such as a canteen, first aid pouch, entrenching tool, and in this case a prized German Luger trophy. Across his chest are two canvas bandoliers with 10 canvas pockets for more M1 Garand en bloc clips.
