For sale here is a great looking complete Korean War or Vietnam War Field Gear Set. Please note that the packs are currently stuffed with blankets and i will not be sending them along for weight reasons, so the blankets are not included.However, if you want the blankets, let me know, and we can work something out. I don't know the condition of the blankets as this is how i found the rig. The rig includes many great items. Most of which are WW2 issue.
I will list them below for your convenience.. 1 Shovel: Shovel is dated 1945 and the cover is marked Tulsa Canvas Products 1943. 2 Lower Pack: M-1945 Cargo Pack marked C.
3 Back Pack: M-1945 Field Combat Pack marked Arakelian Co. And is dated March 20, 1952.
4 Left Canteen: Complete With Cup. Canteen is marked Vollrath 1945 and the cover is marked Callaway Mills 1945. 5 Right Canteen: Complete With Cup.1944 and the cover markings are illegible. 6 First Aid Pouch: The Pouch markings are illegible and the Carlisle bandage is present in a green tin.
7 Suspenders: The suspenders are marked U. Lee is the maker and they are dated 1945. 8 M1 Carbine Bandolier Belt: The belt is green color as is the rest of the gear.I cannot find any markings, but the belt is nice and all of the Klikit Pull snaps are functional. The snaps do appear to have been painted black at some point and have a rough texture. 9 Mitchell Pattern Shelter Half: I haven't unrolled it or removed it from the pack, however the ends are not tattered and the pattern and colors are vibrant. The marking was not in view.
I expect this shelter half to be choice. The back or front of the pack, depending on how you look at it is marked in handwritten letters A4-1825 with the name Mowrey. This is as complete a set as i have come across and everything is in top condition. The canteens are nice with no major dents or dings.I didn't pull out the canteen cups, as i can never get them back in, but they are present and feel undented as well. Everything exhibits some wear, but it is all light, and though things aren't mint, they are in very fine condition.
The shovel is mint and hasn't been used, or was blasted and repainted, but vote unused. The only leather i can find is the shovel bumpers, and it is strong and supple.
The waterproof liners on the top and bottom packs are soft and supple. This is about as good as it gets. You will be extremely pleased. Please feel free to ask any questions that you may have.
