Original Vietnam War Era M1956 Field Pack, 1st Pattern

Regular price £80.00

Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

An original M1956 field pack, generally sound condition, no rips or tears, appears to bear a faded date stamp of 1959 as well as E-60, suggesting the contract was placed in FY1960.  There seems to be no consensus on actual contract/manufacture dates for these packs that bear two dates.  The 1959 may be the date of the specification.

This is the first pattern, not the later M-1961 pattern, as this one has two canvas flaps across the top and lacks the rubberised throat/lining.
