I got this while browsing through the LIFE Magazine scanned images on Google:
Not a haversack, whether M1910 or M1928, nor a musette, as far as I can tell. Maybe locally-sourced? Anyone have any info on this one? It'd be interesting to add another item to our standard PS gear checklist, if ever.

I also noticed that and is similar to what the Constabulary had during the early 1912 periods. I believe this troops are Constabulary as I read that they were rounding up suspected Japanese spies around Manila right after Pearl harbor. Techincally they were a civil police force.
Am looking for anyone with knowledge of Chester Thomas Mason who was in the death march, but died and, unofficially, was buried along the trail. Would appreciate any help or and guidelines. Howard D. Riddle
