    Default WW1 U.S.A. Machine Gunner's bag

    Gents

    Recently I picked up a named uniform lot from a U.S.A machinegunner assigned to the 303. This bag / pack was in the lot, and I'm not sure how it was used. Gun part pack? Papers? It is marked US and made by Perkins Campbell in Apr 1918. It has that long flap with 17 loops which look to hold something the diameter of a .50 cal round. Thanks in advance!

    Hi Bob, it is a standard M1910 "Doughboy Pack".

    It was really a lousy design which was still issued in modified form in WW2. I have worn one many a time!

    Cheers, Ade.
