DESCRIPTION & ASSEMBLY OF THE MODEL 1910 INFANTRY EQUIPMENT MANUALS – TWO MANUAL SET - ORDNANCE DEPARTMENT MANUAL REPRINTS:  The introduction of the Model 1910 Infantry Equipment with all of the attendant belts, packs, pouches, straps and hooks was a dramatic advancement, but was also a considerable increase in the complexity of assembly and wearing the equipment, and as a result the army found it necessary to issue a pair of manuals to identify pieces and instruct the soldiers in their proper use.  These quality reprints are exact reproductions of these service manuals as issued by the U.S. Army to the soldiers during World War I, and are offered here as a set.  

“DESCRIPTION OF THE INFANTRY EQUIPMENT MODEL OF 1910”.  Originally issued in March of 1911, then revised in July of 1912, this manual was printed in Washington by the Government Printing Office in 1917.  The manual consists of 31 pages of text detailing the description and nomenclature of the various pieces of equipment to include: the arms repair chest, mess gear, belts, bolos, canteens, wire cutters, packs, officer’s gear, and some items identified as “mounted” for the Cavalry. In addition, there are 18 photographic plates that provide photos of each item described in the text.   

AND; 

“INSTRUCTIONS FOR ASSEMBLING THE INFANTRY EQUIPMENT MODEL OF 1910”.  Originally issued in March of 1912 this manual was printed in Washington by the Government Printing Office in 1917.  The manual consists of 10 pages, which include five pages of photographs, detailing the assembly of the infantry soldier’s equipment.  Several variations of assembly are presented depending on the needs of the soldier for a particular mission.    

This set is an excellent source of information regarding the nomenclature, issue and wear of this equipment and an important addition to the library of any serious student of World War One.  $15 for the set of two manuals
