Seller: Top-Rated Seller all_this_and_more_77 (558) 100%, Location: Loveland, Colorado, Ships to: US, CA, Item: 112982169554 Up for sale is an original/authentic WWII/Korea Era US Military M-1945 Field Pack w/ M-1945 Suspenders. The Field pack is dated 1945 or 1946, it's tough to make out exactly. The suspenders are dated 1951 and are made by Boyt. The pack and suspenders are in excellent condition for their age with no staining, holes, significant fading, rust or wear observed, the pack does have some wear including markings on the inside near date stamp and a tear at the bottom of the pack around 1 of the cinch straps, which I think will be an easy repair. The suspenders have some scratching/dings on one of the metal ends and do not include the 4 metal hardware hooks used to attach the suspenders to a web belt, so you will need some replacement hooks to attach the suspenders to a web belt the way it was intended. You don't often see this pack in this nice of condition. The M-1945 packs often have a large white label with instructions on them, whether it was removed or not included in the earliest examples, I'm not sure but this one does not have it. From olive-drab.com: Pack, Field, Combat, M-1945 and Pack, Field, Cargo, M-1945Pack, Field, Cargo and Pack, Field, Combat M-1944 were soon replaced by the very similar M-1945 version. But the combat and cargo packs of the two are not interchangeable. The quick release buckles of the M-1944 packs will not work with the double-bar buckles used with the M-1945 version. M-1945 Combat Suspenders were issued to match the packs. These packs were only used by a few units in the last days of World War II (perhaps after February 1945) but continued to be made and remained in service through the Korean War. The Field Pack had a waterproof liner, interior divisions, and numerous straps to close the main flap, to use as shoulder straps or attach to the suspenders, and to hold the intrenching tool handle. Two canvas flaps with eyelets were provided: M-1943 intrenching tool on top center, and a side flap for bayonet or canteen. Bottom straps attached to the Cargo Pack to join the two. You can see the pack on the soldier in the photo to the right, taken in Korea in 1953. The intrenching tool M-1943 is attached to the pack; no cargo pack is in use. He is wearing a pistol belt, not a cartridge belt, and his canteen flap is open.The Cargo Pack had a waterproof closure inside, two straps to close the main flap and short buckle straps on top to mate to the straps on the bottom of the Field Pack. The Cargo Pack also had a web handle on top making it a handy furlough bag or even a tool bag.Both parts of the packs were made in OD #7 canvas and webbing with "US" stamped on the outside of the flap and the manufacturer and date on the inside of the flap. A large instruction sheet was printed on a white label inside the bag with drawings and detailed descriptions of how to pack and use the components.
