FIELD GRADE REPRODUCTION
WWI US ARMY M1910 WEB PISTOL BELT.
In 1910 the U.S. Army Infantry Board developed its first standard set of soldier’s equipment, designed to distribute the weight of the equipment around the body. Made of khaki webbing and canvas duck, this basic system had an equipment belt (cartridge or pistol), supported by suspenders that clipped to the belt on each side of the front buckle and in the middle of the back. The M-1910 Haversack (pack) and straps could take the place of the suspenders. The M-1910 designs were upgraded many times while retaining their general design and purpose.
