actually, Nimlas, rkrueger, and doc burtzen should move pics to the working on it thread, Unless there is Nothing modern in the picture, then that picture can stay, lets just keep it cleaned up. The working on it thread is just as cool, but the stitch nazi thread is, well its supposed to be obsessively perfect.
I always thought the differing levels were for the harshness of the feedback. Like, if you want a light critiscism, put it in the I'm Working on it thread, but, if you want people to tear it to pieces, put it in the stitch Not-See....Hmm...you learn something everyday, eh?

It was a GP strap we rigged up to stop the bags from swinging forward. Also then it would be ready for aftert the jump, when he would ditch the company bag for the aid station and take off the rig. He would have that to hook up the one bag. It was a combined effort lmao. -Cary
"I'm a dog chasing cars. I don't have plans. I just do things. I'm not a schemer. "
what some medics did was wear the 2 pouch/suspender setup on jumps so they had equipment for the aid station... then when on the ground theyd get to the aidstation drop the other bag take the litter strap and drop the 2nd bag and suspenders there and the medic armband marked it as airborne drop off... they would then carry the 1 pouch as a field medic as it is most comfortable for most... also some units like the 505th PIR had drop bags... they were rigger made to carry 10 large carlisles, 15 small carlisles, 10 boxes of 5 syrettes, and some other things...
The front site on a Garand is a removable item. Held in place by a small horizontal screw. It's not uncommon to see them gone. Because they are so large it is very conspicuous when they have fallen off or been removed. They are a surprisingly expensive item to buy and like anything realted to a Garand some versions are extremely expensive and difficult to find.

I had the cartridge belt back at the car, but i couldn't be bothered to change it over! I'm sure I did read somewhere that they stopped using the cartridge belt at one point. But i can't remember when.

aj czarkowski: I don't think there's gonna be anything in northern New England anytime soon, and as far as I know there hasn't been in a while, but if you're willing to drive to Connecticut there's usually some decent sized battles a couple times a year.
