While the seller does not directly identify these snowshoes as U.S. Army snowshoes, he certainly implies that they are by saying that they were issued in the Aleutian Islands. In fact, they are British, or possibly Canadian. Careful examination of this pattern snowshoe will generally reveal a British "Broad Arrow" stamped into the wooden frame identifying them as British Army issue. They are often marked "Made in England" too.

This pattern snowshoes is often misidentified as a U.S. Army issue item and they appear for sale on the internet with some regularity.
