    How come I have seen different ones? They are USMC but are they different models?

    Thanks,

    Here are links to some of the websites.

    Here's some of the sites I was using. I have mine mostly together, but it still looks in disarray mainly because I need another mannequin(my nephew is in Hawaii, or I'd use him

    I have a PDF file of the USMC manual that shows how it looks all together, but they didn't add all of the manual, so it's kind of trial by error. I don't know how to put it on here, or remember the site where I got it from. But the pencil site has it down pretty good, I used that one too.

    Your pack is a 4th pattern, with the roll up top. The others had a flap. Are there any markings on it? they did use this into the Vietnam war, too.

    I hadn't seen any markings on it at all. Could it have been used in WW2?

    Thanks,
