    Hi to all. Just putting up some WW1. U.S. gear I have collected over the years, I mainly like it's historical value, already about 100 years old. Will add some more when I dig it out. regards Jim.WW1 Accoutrements Dscn0652

    Boy, that eagle snap belt looks like it could tell some stories!

    Hi Andrew. All the stuff i have collected over the years has been mostly used, the more worn out the better & that ammo belt is one of my best, because it has field repairs with even a lift the dot flap replacement. I assume it was pre ww1 made and repaired for America joining the war as most of my WW1 American stuff have late war year stamps, ie. 1916 to 1918. The leather mag pouch is Rock Island 1913, the eagle snap belt Ican't find the date. And your comment says it all thanks Andrew. regards Jim.

    Jim, the eagle snap belt would likely be made before 1917, but I would need to recheck my references to get a better idea. These Mills belts were normally well marked under the pocket flaps, but the stampings would long ago have faded out on this one I imagine.

    Are there any markings on the forks?

    Hi Andrew. Yes two of the forks are stamped WBW 1918 & 1 is stamped CPC M 1918. And the belt has a stamp of a cartridge and some other stamps that may represent a battalion or regiment. I have thrown in some other pics of webbing & canteens with stamps, unusually one canteen is not stamped at all. There is some other stuff but I will put in in the pre WW1 section.
