First purchase of the new year, a named M1917A1. Salty and beat, just like I like em. Any ideas why the non-hook side of the chinstrap always seems to be ripped off on these?
I can't read the name, but under it seems to be written Fort Benning. There also seems to be a service number further up.
I'll have a close look once she arrives.
Thoughts on the white paint?
