USMC DQP Pick Mattocks Carrier

The Marine Corps pick mattocks carrier made by Philadelphia Depot has several distinctive features compared to the army version:

-USMC wire hanger
-USMC golden colored materials
-WWI era buckles and flat metal tips
-Lack of U.S. marking
-Typical USMC Depot manufacturing characteristics.

  1. Did the Marine Corps have this type of wire hanger during WW1 on their field gear or was it introduced sometime during the WW2 era?
