I've been working on this for a while. It's grey and rainy outside, so a good day to post this.
poncho, even with a magnifying glass I can't make out if it says U.S.N or U.S.M. The way the rest of the stamp is so bold, I don't think the C. would have rubbed off.
The M1941 pack, this is the 4th pattern pack, it rolls over to close the top, unlike the first 3 patterns that used a flap and 2 tie straps. From a lot of the reading I've found, this style was made during the war, but was never received by any Marines in theatre before the war ended. This style was used all the way up to and into the Vietnam war.
The green one of these 2 is from Vietnam I believe, it's not khaki like the others I have seen. I know the color did change to OD by then. I used the green one in my display only because the hook of the pigtail was still present.
This is the haversack (bottom bag) and knapsack (top bag) top and bottom as they would have been worn.
