    Yes, late war with that unusual ( but period ) rear hook. It is legit - see this thread http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/field-...e-they-243173/ ( I have a similar set and eventually they got a thumbs up )
    As to the auxiliary straps, if you didn't have a backpack, they just got in the way - so, may as well cut them off!
