This set, given the dates and style of the individual items, represents what would have been carried in the campaigns of 1944 & 1945. The set exhibits a uniform degree of use. The green tarnish on the belt fittings, from salt air, has been deliberately left un-cleaned. At this stage of the war a mix of Army and specific USMC equipment was common.
