Randy Harvey [HARV] brings us another fascinating unusual piece of military kit - a U.S. Cargo M-1950 Military Pack Saddle. With the surprising number of pack stock available to modelers, this reference should be very useful.

Thank you for getting the pictures posted for me Fred. I appreciate it. Hopefully someone can get some use out of them.

Here is a picture of one of the pack saddles in use.



Thank you,

Well I have some good news in regards to the pack saddle. I have been trying to find a home for it for awhile now with no luck. I contacted Mr. Tom Rancor in Wasta, South Dakota and he owns and operates the Armed Forces Display & Gifts museum and he is going to take and display the pack saddle there. So I am very happy about that.
