We have 4 of these packs with CARGA ? 1950 stamped on it. Does anyone know anything about these? Leftover from WWII?
Thanks.

That is a Model 1950 Phillips Cargo saddle for use on mules to carry Pack Artillery loads and Quartermaster pack loads. They are the same as the Model 1934 with the exception of the use of aluminum in place of some steel.

Do you know of anyone who would want to buy them or would like them donated to their museum?
