        The final version of the WW2 M1936 suspenders, generally referred to by collectors as the M1943 Suspenders.
        Some were all dark OD, but like here a mix of different fabric colors is not unusual.

        Rarily seen worn in combat but a few can be seen on 1945 photos taken in the ETO, notably on the well known photo of 17th AB troopers loading a 57mm Recoilless Rifle during Operation Varsity.
        These were replaced by the M1944 and M1945 type suspenders near the end of WW2 which continued to be used throughout the Korean War.
