US Paratrooper Shortened Entrenching Shovel

M-1910 Entrenching Shovel in a rare shortened version. This shortened model was mostly used by Airborne forces, since the full length shovel could be a burden, when it was carried in the waist belt and the handle could get in the way during combat jumps. The shovel is complete with its original cover and in excellent condition.
