    Default Unknown map case (U.S. ?)

    Hi,
    I received some US (?) items and cannot assign them.
    Including a map case, made of canvas.
    Is this an American one?
    I couldn't find any stamps.

    There were also a few other, probably military, among the stuff.
    Could you perhaps tell me which bags these are?

    There were also two glasses which, in my opinion, are also military.

    I would be happy to receive answers from you.

    Thanks in advance,
    Ro

    Yes, your guess is correct. A U.S. M1936 map case, in the mid- to later-war O.G. colour, though with a modification; the original shoulder strap has been removed and the small, handgrip riveted on in its place.

    Nice!

    Edit, Glenn and Kohima were faster on the draw.

    Hi there.

    It kind of looks like this -

    The olive drab map case is “USMC” marked and it bears a painted unit mark on the reverse side. Interior stamped “Lite Mfg Co 1944”. The interior has a pencil, map pins, a metal map distance frame, and a celluloid grid overlay that has broken.

    Maybe your example has been modified by removing the carry strap, then a 'carry handle' attached using rivets.

    Kind regards,

    Will.

    Here's a canteen cover and a pouch that I don't know.
    Is the pouch for a first aid kit?

    I would be interested in the period of use.

    Thx. in advance.

    The pouch is an American m1956 (m56) first aid/compass pouch as used during the Vietnam war. From what I have seen they were normally attached to the suspenders.

    A few more pouches, probably of more recent use?
    What are the three small plastic pouches and the canvas pouch for?

    Please excuse my questions, but I am more familiar with bayonets and combat knives and less with US equipment, which I am also marginally interested in.

    Thx. in advance.

    And here I have two dust goggles

    Is it possible that glasses like this, which were manufactured in 1974, were still used in NAM ?

    The original model for these glasses should then probably be the M44 ?

    The Alice type suspension clips date your pouches towards Vietnam era as they came in after WW2.
