These jump boots and field gear are more items from the huge F Company, 506th PIR, 101st Airborne Division grouping that has been subject of previous posts. The jump boots have the brass eyelets seen on early boots. The aviators kit bags were popular with airborne troops to carry and store their items. There are a number of manuals in this group, but I chose to just photo one which is my favorite. It illustrates unarmed combat techniques.
