USMC QUARTERMASTER DEPOT. This e tool cover, unlike most Marine Corps shovel covers which were procured from the US Army, was made at the Philadelphia Navy Yard w the USMC Quartermaster Depot was located. This Depot, run by the Marine Corps, but staffed with civilian seamstresses, made many field gear (782) items for the Marine Corps including: leggings, M1905 16 inch M1 Garand and M 1903 Springfield Bayonet Scabbard Covers, First Aid Pouches, Knapsacks, Haversacks, Herringbone Twill (HBT) Fatigue Uniforms, Khaki Shelter Halves, etc.

Etool Cover made at the Depot did not have a US on the front, as is the case Some left with rubber stamps inside; others, like this one, had a cutter tag which was long ago removed.

HARDWARE: unique Marine Corps angled belt hanger with brass square buckle of the type found on early USMC M1910 and Model 1941 Packs.

COLOR: This cover is that nice dark golden khaki favored by the USMC QM Depot.

MATERIALS: This fabric heavy duty canvas.

CONDITION: This is a used e-tool cover with all defects shown. These are not a grimy, greasy, unserviceable cover. No returns based on condition please.


With the recently released Clint Eastwood movies, Flags of Our Fathers , and Letters From Iwo Jima, the two new books on USMC WWII militaria by Harlan Glenn, the re-publication of Grunt Gear and the now-in-production Hanks-Spieldberg HBO mini-series. Pacific about Marines in the Pacific, along the lines of Band of Brothers, it can be widely seen that USMC and Japanese Army and Navy Landing Force items have already begun to dramatically shoot up in value. This happened to all the much more common US Army and German gear after Tom Hanks' Saving Private Ryan. Get yours now of pay double next year!
