U.S. Infantryman with M1 Garand, 1944-45 

A new pack system was developed by the U.S. Army in 1944. The packs were made of cotton canvas with cotton web straps; all were in Olive Drab Shade 7. The M1936 suspenders could be used alone to support the weight of a pistol or cartridge belt or used to hold the combat field pack. This soldier’s suspenders are attached to the M1923 Cartridge Belt. It was developed to hold ammunition for the M1903 rifle: 2, 5-round stripper clips in each of the 10 pouches for a total of 100 rounds but it could also hold 10 M1 rifle en bloc clips for a total of 80 rounds. Each pouch was securely closed with a “Lift-the-DOT” fastener developed by the Scovill Company which was founded in 1802 in Waterbury, CT and has supplied buttons for the U.S. Army since the War of 1812.
