Description

The Haversack during World Was II used by the Infantry and Marines as a light assault pack or as a complete field pack when the lower part was added.  The pack is essentially rugged khaki-colored canvas that folds around its contents (bedroll, clothing, daily rations, and assorted personal items), and is held together by flaps and adjustable buckle-straps.

As shown on page 69 of the Army Service Forces Catalog, Government Issue Collector’s Guide, the M-1928 was made of canvas and had a pouch on the top main flap that held the meat can and cutlery.  Under this, an entrenching tool was hooked on by a two grommeted tab.  A bayonet was carried on the right, using the same method.

This Reproduction of the M1928 Haversack includes the meat can pouch.
