Shovel holder

Date Submitted: 11/27/03
I just got a shovel bracket from a M2. It looks like it could hold 4 or more shovel heads in it. Is this a WWII item, or was this shovel bracket a post war add on? The one on my M2 only has room for one shovel head to fit in. One of the few, the proud, Frank

Hello Frank, I have seen one of these multiple shovel holders on a M16 halftrack at a WWII museum. Not sure, but it looked like it belonged there. Some may field mods were done, who's to say what is original? I know I would want more than one shovel when it came time to dig one of these 9 ton beasts out! Ron Leatherman 02/06/04
