C003278 U.S. M28 BACKPACK.

This knapsack ( officially known as haversack) was modeled after the M10 haversack, which was used in World War One. One of the major differences is at the top where the meat pouch would sit, instead of being fastened by buttons it is done so by straps. It is made of Khaki-colored canvas with khaki coloured web straps. This sack was used to carry the shelter equipment, (tent, poles, blanket etc) while on the top, it was meant to carry the more personal items, (i.e.; underwear, extra socks...) On the side there is space for the bayonet that would be carried with the muzzle ring vis--vis the rear. The ink stamp to the front reads "US", while the rear reads "Newton Mfg. Co. 1942". The pack shows moderate to heavy usage and wear with oxidation to the metal components and wear to the seams.
