Hard to see clearly on a cell phone
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
"Don't tell me these are investments if you never intend to sell anything" (Quote: Wife)
It does look like a P-38 holster to me.
Best regards, Patrick
A few more

the holster could also be a PP holster
Very nice set of photos! They all appear to have belonged to the 45th Infantry Division.
I took the time to research the guy farthest to the left in the photo of the four GI's standing with their duffle bags. Here is Lamar A. Slabaugh's enlistment record: NARA - AAD - Page not found
And here is his grave: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg...GRid=36405896&
I have also located his children and grandchildren and can give them a call for you if you'd like. I figure the family might like to see a pic of granddad from back in the war.
Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
OB that would be very cool. Their is only 2 photos with the 45th insignia all other photos have a tank insignia .
