Pouches

 

Just a quick sketch to illustrate what's kept in the pouches: ammo, here a single eight shot clip for an M1 Garand.  Although Bill Mauldin would probably be quick to point out they were also the perfect size for a pack of cigarettes.  And the horizontal one fastened below two of the other pouches is a first aid pouch.

    Thank-you, K, for illustrating it in this way for me. Makes me smile. The expression on this guy’s face looks like, “Here, constant viewer. This is what I have in these. So cool. Keep up the good work!

    Captain Stein! I didn’t mean for him too, but I guess he’s tired looking too, looks like him a bit. Have you read the book by the way or just seen Terrence Malick’s film?
