NO ENEMY EQUIPMENT OR WEAPONS ARE ALLOWED

It must be pointed out that some WW 1 field gear was used during World War II. Some examples: canteens, haversacks and 10-pouch cartridge belts. All World War II-dated items are fine for reenacting. Post World War II items from 1946-50 are also good. In late 1950 during the Korean War, most uniforms and field equipment changed in both style and color. These cannot be used.
