Description  US WWII GI Combat Shoulder Pads
Price $ 10.00/pair


Original WWII GI shoulder universal load-bearing shoulder pads for wear with field equipment, in mint condition. These pads will work on everything from the GP shoulder strap to cartridge belt suspenders, and were evidently inspired by the Airborne-improvised blanket wool pads so well-evidenced during Operation Overlord. Constructed of dark OD canvas, this set matches perfectly, and each pad is clearly inkstamped "US" on obverse and "Kroehler Mfg. Co. / 1945" on reverse. Absolutely new condition.
