I have what I think is a pair of US WW1 canvas cartridge belt suspenders. The pic doesn't show them real clear. They are marked by MILLS I believe and I have not been able to find a picture on-line of this type of item being used for some reason??? I found them on a hand-made "Boyscout" pack. They had seperated the straps from each other but I couldn't see that they had "destroyed" anything else (I hope). I assume that they were attached together by some means like the WW2 verion? Any pics and info would be fantatic! Thanks!! Jeff

Pack Suspenders

They appear to be the Model 1936 Pattern , which would be correct for the Model 1923 Cartridge belt displayed

Thanks Retread!
Do you know any websites that show the different models used from WW1 on?

Thanks, Jeff

Jeff, did you look inside the flaps of the 2 cartridge pouches closest to the buckle. There should be a date stamp there.

Thanks! I had no idea there was a stamp normally located there. I will have to get them back out and look for that. Unfortunatly this belt is missing the webbing that connects the two ammo sections together. Any body know where I could pick up a loose one? Jeff
