 M1926 Leather Utensil Sheaths (For The M1910 & M1926 Mess Kit)

These are our reproduction of the M1926 mess kit utensil sheaths used to protect both the knife and fork, and although originally issued with every M1928 haversack or M1936 Musette Bag, these days most are now found to being missing from surplus item bought today, and so make a great addition to finish your mess kit. We have made ours from genuine vegetable tanned leather with the "Ruff" flesh side out, which has not been dyed or oiled and has the natural tan colour to the hide, as per the original covers when issued new. They have been patterned from an original set that I’ve had for over twenty years, and I have made my reproductions using one of my original WWII Singer industrial sewing machines, and the correct heavy weight thread which is the main mistake with most other reproductions I've seen. I've used a Khaki shade on these, however if you would prefer a set with Darker olive thread then please just ask. Finally I have checked the fit of these sheaths with my original 1942 Boyt Doughboy pack and so I know they fit fine, and as a Technical/Historical note there was never a sheath for the spoon.

£8.50

(Leather Sheaths for the Knife & Fork Only there was never a spoon cover)

Please note the O.D#7 (Dark Olive) that we are using for these is much darker than our other O.D.7 (Dark Olive) in fact this colour is more a kin to the O.G. 107 this is due to the wax waterproofing darking the fabric, however is the correct shade used for these in 1943-45.

Shotgun Shell Sizes.

The loops in our pouches are designed for use with 12 Gauge (US) 12 Bore (UK) Shotgun Cartridges of the universal stand size which is 18.3mm - 18.5mm in Diameter. Please note when new the loops are tight, again this deliberate as it allows for natural stretch and give in the weave of the cotton webbing which comes with use.

 M1941 M1 Carbine Scabbard (Cavalry or Linesman's Scabbard)

First production scabbard made for the M1 carbine, these were only manufactured in limited numbers during WW2, this holster/scabbard was original designed for use by the U.S. Cavalry and illustrated as such in the U.S. Army Hand book from 1941, however instead most were used by linesman’s, and artillery troops, who need to be able to carry there M1 carbine with both hands and there shoulders free from there weapon, while they performed there frontline duties. This item in fact stayed into production well into the Vietnam area, most original models were manufactured at Government arsenals, instead of government contracts such as Kadin or Boyt for example. The scabbard is for the full stock M1 Carbine pre-dates the airborne type by over a year, and although made throughout the war, the M 1941 scabbard was only used in limited numbers although production continued until the end of the war. These scabbards were never issued to the very units it was designed for, due to the demise of the cavalry's, horse mounted U.S. soldier in 1942. Our reproduction is in the early style of manufacture from about 1941-1942 with an O.D. 9 (Khaki Tan) canvas body and matching O.D.9 (Khaki Tan)webbing and edging, the body is double lined throughout, with an internal 2 inch webbing reinforcement which runs the entire length of the rear of the scabbard, the tip of the scabbard is also re-enforced with O.D.9 (Khaki Tan) panel webbing to extend the life of the holster due to being originally designed to hang from a M1936 pistol while in the saddle.

 M1941 Mounted Canteen Cover

Introduced in about 1942 for use by mounted personal, this cover has a specially reinforced rear strap section which helps support of the weight of the canteen while ridding. It was also supplied with a canteen strap adapter which allows the canteen to hang low on the pistol or rife belt while in the saddle. However due to the demise of the cavalry this item was adopted my Airborne troops amongst others, with a modified version of this cover becoming the standard dismounted model of 1942. Our reproduction is made entirely in Khaki Tan canvas and webbing.

£23.00

(Please note the canteen is not included)

 

 M1941 Canteen Strap Adapter (For use with the above)

Please note these were made in at least two different lengths, our reproduction is the longer model.

 M1942 Canteen Cover (Early Production Produced 1942-1944)

The standard model canteen cover used for the majority of WWII, and was issued new between 1942- 1944. The cover is a copy of the early production models, with seven lines of front stitching with approximately 3/8 th of an inch gap between each row. The cover is also lined with the correct waste wool felt insulation as per the original, and is made entirely in the O.D. 9 (Khaki Tan) colour scheme. This model was standardised at the end of 1941 and its construction and style of manufacture was based closely on the M1941 Calvary model. This cover replaced the late style M1910 pattern. The main technical difference between this version, and the previous models is the over all sizing of the cover, and reduced production times due to the simplification of manufacture. The main reason for this redesign was due to the wider rolled seam on the rim of the M1910 canteens manufactured out of stainless steel, which meant this model would not fit correctly into the M1910 pattern cover, after combat use due to shrinkage.

£22.00

 

 M1942 Canteen Cover (Late Production Produced 1943-1956)

By around about 1943 a design flaw came to light. It was found through combat experience that there was a week point in the design where the webbing strap holding hook to the rear of the cover was itself prone to damage, due to the amount stress on the stitching when the canteen was full, this over a period of time weakened the stitching and one of two things then happen ether the stitching broke causing the hanger and strap to come away from the cover or the pressure ripped though the canvas and felt lining of the cover making it unserviceable . So a simple design change was made to the cover by adding an additional section of webbing running across the back this was sewn over the original strap and hanger to reinforce the cover and spread the load. The improved design was issued from D-Day onwards and was used right up until the end of WWII, with this design staying in service until the advent of the M1956 Load Carrying Equipment. Our reproduction is made in the early transitional style of construction as per the first version of this model, the canvas body of the canteen is Khaki Tan with the Type III Class III strap and Type I Class VIII edge binding webbing in O.D#3(Mid-Olive).

( *Special Order item 1-2 weeks delivery; Although hundred percent correct for WWII transitional items, are far less popular with the re-enacting community, and so we offer them for the discerning collector but made to order only, and no we don’t make this model in all Khaki as they were never manufactured then like that.)

 M1942 Thompson Ammo Bag (Standard Type)

Introduced to supplement and also replace the standard model pouches for the Thompson sub-machine gun. The bag for the carrying of 30 round clips was much more practical.

This type of bag was standard issue for the European theatre of operations, and is ideal for any D-Day onwards impression. The colour scheme has been faithfully copied from the original

 M1942 Thompson Ammo Bag (Reinforced Boyt Style)

Around the end of 1942 BOYT manufactured a version of the standard bag with a modified lid design and alterative open ended strap arrangement with a tablar buckle fitted instead of an M1910 Raised bar slide, which was produced fro one contract only, before than returning to the original design. Our reproduction is based on the transitional colour scheme of this version and is made in O.D.9 (Khaki Tan) canvas with O.D.3 (Mid-Olive) strap webbing and edge binding, so if you want something a little more unusual and different from the normal then this is for you. Again this type/style of bag would be ideal for any D-Day onwards impression.

 M1943 Experimental Jungle Bladder Canteen Cover (1st pattern)

This is a reproduction of the 1st pattern bladder canteen cover, this item was test and developed from 1943 onwards, as a possible replacement for the M1910 canteen in the Pacific theatre. The design was extensively trailed throughout 1943 by members of the Army and marines as per of the 1943 review and overhaul program which covered all aspects of U.S. Army combat equipment. The flexible canteen design went through a number of chances during its deployment, and are replica is base on the first production type, this cover did see some limited use during WWII and was latter issue during the early stages of the Vietnam conflict. Please note the cover has the correct stencilled markings as used on this item, it is also supplied with two attachment hooks one special “U” hook on the cover and one stand M1910 pattern double hook which is required to fit this canteen to your belt kit. Please note there are many slight differences in style and design, and thus we have opted for the most common version of the 1st pattern cover I.E. the eyelets face inwards to prevent damage top the bladder, and finally the centre Leg tie/ lanyard eyelet in set low in the cover in the binding.

 M1943 Folding E-Tool Cover (1st Pattern, Fixed Hook)

The first pattern cover for the M1943 folding shovel. This type of entrenching tool was first issued around about D-Day, and was one of the first two tone (transitional) colour scheme items to see wide service during and immediately after the Normandy landings. These covers are slightly smaller in size to the second pattern model which first appeared in about 1945, unlike the later models this version has a fixed style M1910 hook stitched to the back, in a similar way to other WWII items such as a water canteen cover. Our reproduction follows the correct first production colour scheme of the first production runs, with a O.D.9 (Khaki Tan) canvas body and O.D.3 Type III Class III webbing and Type I Class VIII edging, the cover is also lined with natural russet tan leather, and re-enforced on the back with a separate webbing O.D.7 (Dark Olive) panel as per the original models.

 M1943 2 Pocket M1 Carbine Pouch (2nd Pattern)

Introduced as a result of the 1943 equipment review this pouch was designed to partly replace the M1928 Rifle belt as this can also be used to carry the eight "En Bloc" clips used by the Garand, experiments were undertaken where a modified pistol belt was fitted with a group of these pouches to act as a rifle, this idea was tried by the U.S.M.C. however is was not widely adopted. Our reproduction pouch has been made in the transitional colours of O.D#9 Canvas body with Type III Class III strap webbing and Type I Class VIII edging both being in in O.D#3 (Mid-Olive) as per contractors such as Pittsburgh Garter Co. This pouch is also has the eyelets in the base to allow it to be used in the rifle belt role, these were also made without eyelets at first and we can if required make to in that style.

 M1944 3 Pocket Pouch M3-M3A1 Grease Gun (All Canvas Construction)

This is a reproduction of the M1944 pattern pouch for the M3/M3A1 Grease Gun, these were made entirely of canvas and not webbing as per commercial and latter army models manufactured for 5 x 20 RD and 3 x 30 RD Thompson Sub-machine Gun Magazines. Although similar in design to the 3 x 30RD U.S.M.C. Thompson pouch which appeared about the same time, they are in fact quite different, as the Grease gun pouch pockets are much deeper to accommodate the 32 RD magazines, which were single stack designed based around those used with the Sten Gun or Mp28, with the M3/ M3A1 model pouch remaining in U.S. service well into the Vietnam War period. Our reproduction is manufactured in O.D#7 (Dark Olive) canvas with type IIa edge binding and Type III Class III webbing in O.D#3 (Mid-Olive). Please note these are the correct colours for a late WWII impression as production models of the M1944 pouch were made in 14oz O.D#7 (Dark Olive) as opposed to those commonly available from surplus outlets which are of 1960’s manufacture and thus are made in 12oz O.G#107 (Very Dark Olive) under contract DSA 100-4479-8465-577-4915

 M1 General Purpose Ammunition Bag (Early Style Two Snap Hooks)

This is a reproduction General Purpose Ammunition bag base on my early 1943 date HARIAN manufactured example. This design has both snap hooks attached to the integral side strap on the bag, with the distinctive box lid, and angled side pleats. The two snap hooks are attached to the Type IIa webbing around the sides of the bag which is then in turn stitched to the side panel thus making the bag loads carrying capacity much higher. This double snap hook arrangement feature was deleted on later production circa 1944-1945, in favour of a single snap hook and "D" ring style. The bag is constructed in the transitional style from O.D.9 (Khaki Tan) canvas, with O.D.9 (Khaki Tan) Class III Strap webbing, with the edge binding and the type IIa webbing used for the integral carry strap being made out of webbing in the O.D.3 (Mid-Olive) shade. The bag also includes the internal pocket in light weight canvas O.D.7 (Dark Olive) which is complete with drain hole eyelet at the base. All Dee's are new brass, all snap hooks, ball end tips and the 1 inch Tablar slide are all genuine mils-spec items, from U.S Government contractors. The bag comes complete with the M1936 pattern carry strap in O.D.3 (Mid-Olive) , which we have made to the longer length of the latter snap hook type models.

(*Special Order item 1-2 weeks delivery, this is due to the amount of time needed to make one of these to the orignal spec)

 M2 Jungle First Aid Kit Pouch (First Pattern*)

Introduced after 1943 as part of the combat equipment review, this pouch contain an enlarge medical kit for use in the Far East and the pacific rim where the high humidity climate and Jungle conditions increased the danger of secondary infection as the result of a combat injury. The kit was issued to both Army and Marines troops serving in that theatre of conflict and this is why I’ve included our reproduction in both categories. Our Reproduction is based on the early style pouch* and thus is made of O.D#7 (Dark Olive) canvas and Type III Class III 2 inch strap webbing and Type VIII Class I Edge binding and internal webbing. We’ve made our pouch in the first pattern style* as produced by Avery and Richard Green & Co which has a distinctive “V” stitch design down the front of the pouch where the machinist has sewn the internal webbings together, also having looked at period picture this style was issued to the U.S.M.C. Finally these were never made in Khaki or in an O.D#3 Light Olive colour scheme, most were all O.D#7 (Dark Olive) and the first few productions runs were in a part transitional colour scheme.

(*there are two pouch sizes the early models are slightly different dimensions to the latter production)
