      Minor changes to the Forum   12/12/17

      We have altered the structure of the Home Fronts and Uniforms, Arms, Insignia, Equipment & Medals boards. We have removed the sub-category headings and now each board is more visible and easier to find. We have also renamed "About this website" and "Using theTechnology" to make it clearer where to post questions about the GWF website. We have also put a link ot the forum Rules on the main menu at the top to make them easier to find - particularly the section regarding requesting look ups on subscription sites such as Ancestry. Finally, for those who visit Skindles, there is a pinned post there detailing some changes to it.   Regards The GWF Admin Team

Dear reader,

Any clue what kind of gear this has been? and there is a number with initials, which could be possible to trace?

Found in northern France near the town of Stenay in a ruin.


kind regards

This is the standard US Army back pack from WW1 and continued to be manufactured and used in WW2. The "tail" is fitted to the bottom with a leather lace.
