These are courtesy of mypublicside , a friend on instagram with the same interests. It’s his display of 82nd Airborne Division gear used on D-Day.
If you don’t recognize those two pouches on the front of the web belt it’s because thsoe were never official issue. Those were rigger made by division parachute riggers. They help frags, M1 magazines, M1 Garand block clips etc. The Thompson gunner likely had 4 fragmentation grenades in them.
The Yellow painted grenade is correct. Yellow was the color the military used/uses for explosives. Guys in pacific found out pretty quick that the yellow color made for a great target. Later frags were painted OD but with a yellow band at the top of the body to still ID it as explosive. Of course lots of yellow grenades were still out there and it took time before they solid yellow frags were used up.
The arm brassard on the right arm was supposed to turn color when exposed to chemical weapons. They were issued out for the invasion. Uniforms used in the invasion were also treated in a chemical to make them some what repellent for chemical weapons. The treatment made them stuff and very hot and uncomfortable. After the first couple of days it didn’t take long for the GIs to gather up large tubs, fill them with water , get it boiling and drop their uniforms in to wash the treatment out.
The neckerchief is a section of the camo parachute silk cut out and used. Officers and NCOs were issued a silk neckerchief with a map of Normandy and most of France printed on it for E&E purposes if needed.
