Description

This is an intrenching tool carrier that was used in the US Military. The pouch carries fits both the M1943 folding shovel and the M1951 combination tool. The shovel is secured with a button snap flap and can be attached to compatible gear with the ALICE clips on the back. There are leather strips used to reinforce areas on the pouch. On the front there are tabs for attaching bayonets for carry. M5, M5A1, M6 and M7 bayonet scabbards are all compatible.

Features:

  • ILCE System – Individual Load Carrying Equipment, M1956. This system was adopted after the Korean War to replace the WW2 and previous era equipment that was standard across the US Military. The equipment was developed to be used in the possibility of a European war against the USSR. The basic issue of the equipment consisted of a pistol belt, suspenders, two ammo pouches, canteen pouch, E Tool pouch, sleeping bag carrier and a field pack.

Further improvements would fall under the M1967 pattern and were made of lighter nylon material.
