Thanks for all the interesting tips and hints. I will be use most if not all you help.
I managed to get an m1 ammo belt and suspender with canteen, rifle cleaning kit and first aid kit for christmas, so looks like my weapon of choise will be an m1 garand, did all infantry carry a bayonet if they were issues a garand?
I have also got a musette bag which clips nicely to my suspenders for carrying equipment, don't like the look of the doughboy haversack, and as I would be mainly displaying with the jeep I assume a solder would only carry the essentials when out on patrol and leave the rest with the jeep.
Thanks again
