    Hi Ranger,
    When you say suspenders do you mean what we call Braces, ie to hold up your trousers ( pants )
    if so i will have a look for some pics.

    Hi Panzer3,
    Sortof they were used to hold the medic equipment bags, but some GIs would use them to hold their ammo belts/pistol belts. Here is a pic of what one looks like.. I'll see if I can upload one of my pics to help out.

    Thank You
    Mike

    maybe this is a dumb question, but there were more reporters during the Korean war & since nearly all the gear was left over from ww2? it's worth a try. I have bought a lot of U.S. equipment from the Korean war with ww2 dates on them & got them a lot cheaper.
