It is funny how things happen. Just the other day I got a S. Froelich Co. 1943 Motor Vehicle Leather Scabbard.
It was quite hard so I was doing cleaning and applying of leather conditioner when Dave Tennent sent me a video of a reenactment of the liberation of Belgium with US soldiers.



To commemorate the liberation of Belgium, this column of army vehicles of that period drives all the way through Belgium via the same route that they traveled 75 years ago. This was their arrival in Sint-Truiden. A city in Belgium. Hundreds of people cheered along the roads they took like many years ago. The column consists of amateurs and real soldiers. They told the press that they were greatly moved every time they drove through a row of enthusiastic crowds to celebrate their reception. Just like with the liberation 75 years ago. Different nationalities participate. Like the same real thing many years ago.

Dave points out there is a carbine scabbard (about 1:48 mark) and hopes it is real.



This appears to be version I have not observed other than in War Baby 2 page 654.

Notice it does not have the metal plate for the slide handle. The leather goes over it.

It was from a Camel advertisement



Does anyone own or have any pictures of this wider scabbard?
