"Booming Betty" Bazooka

Full webbing set:
Pistol belt
3-4 double M1 Carbine pouches
M1 Carbine Scabbard.
Water Bottle Canteen
Suspenders with Felt pads
Musette pack
1st Aid pouch on belt
1st And pack on suspenders
Couple of Frag grenades on the D-rings

I'll be there, 1st Sgt, 101st.

M1A1 Thompson
M1911 Colt
'Look alike' trench gun (as back up - hopefully won't need it)

Full webbing with Thompson Mag Bag and Musette pack - not sure if I'll go all out (1st Aid pouch on suspenders, drop rope etc) as they just add weight and get in the way! But I'll have belt 1st Aid Pouch, 1911 Leather Holster, Double 1911 Mag Pouch, Canteen and felt pads. Might stick all the other stuff on for the photos.
M1C Helmet with net and hessian, but I'll bin the leather chin cup!

Nice, those guys definitely need to form some sort of line at 0'39" though! ;)
