    Light belt order: the standard enlisted man's belt with M36 buckle, two triple sets of Model 1911 rifle ammunition pouches in pebbled-finish black leather, the 584/98 bayonet in its black leather frog; and the M38 gasmask in its canister.


    The Army belt buckle introduced in January 1936 was to remain the standard issue for all enlisted men throughout the war. Materials used vary between steel and aluminium, with several manufacturer’s variations.


    "Dice-shakers" the standard Army marching boots which were worn throughout the war by those who could get them, though replaced as official issue from 1940 onwards by laced ankle boots, in order to save on leather.
