Ammo holder?

This part looks like for an E-tool:

Here's the other end of the E-tool part, and a bit for attaching the whole shebang to the old-style web belt:

It's off-topic, that's what it is. ;)

But it is an off-topic question about a M1910 pack/haversack. Take a look at this page for more information: http://www.hardscrabblefarm.com/ww2/m1928pack.htm (not quite the same, but close enough for me)

And these too:

Its not a gun, I can tell you that much.

In the first 3 pictures, I thought it was a bug painted on a wall. :)
