Anyone shed light on this please .. overall length is about 3 foot, it is marked US but thats all, looks like it could go around a bedroll ?? curiosity more then anything, picked it up as you do with other stuff I wanted, Im thinking it is maybe post war ..??

M1956 Sleeping Carrier A complicated set of straps, also called "spaghetti straps". Use it to strap your sleeping bag or poncho with liner rolled inside, on to your M1956 suspenders.

i had one when i did vietnam, never used it as the troops over there rarely used the thing, just about the 2nd most useless, complicated piece of crap ever issued

Prices of Vietnam-era stuff have been rising steadily the last few years, so you should be able to sell it.
