Items From Guadalcanal

This page is my tribute to the Marines who fought on Guadalcanal.  Not many original combat used items and uniforms exist from this battle, so I've focused more on examples of uniforms and equipment that would have issued to the Marines sent here. I'm always looking for Guadalcanal combat items with solid provenance and whatever original period maps may still exist from the battle.
