    too bad my flea markets here are closed for the winter now

      Hello Mike,


      All of this came out of Antique shops!!!


      The belt is definitely a keeper and it goes well with the Late War Ammo pouches that I picked up.

          Hello Bodes,


          One of the rations pre-dates my time in service , 1977 , The other is a B-2 unit. The 2 buckle boots are US army winter boots. Not sure if these are WWII era or post. Decent size and in good shape.

              Thanks for the reply Fred...The B-2 is likely WW2, the "B" standing for bread....I don't readily recall the white boots....Nice all around find..Bodes

                Hello,


                Doing a little reference work I found the white 2 buckle boots were called the arctic felt boots,WWII. The rations I believe are post WWII because of the way they opened.

                  Probably right about the rations....Most WW2 canned rations (C-Rats) were silver in color and dated on the end opposite the one with the key.....Later WW2, they used a green lacquer on the cans to subdue them.....Bodes
