TROOPS COULD BE ISSUED THE M1936 UNIFORM IN FIELD GRAY,M1935 STEEL HELMET,PERSONAL EQUIPMENT BREAD BAG,"Y" HARNESS,M1931 WATER BOTTLE(CANTEEN),AMMO POUCHES,ENTRENCHING TOOL(SHOVEL)MESS KIT AND SHELTER HALF/BED ROLL ANYWAY THIS IS MY GUESS...

That's an MG34 not an MG13. You just have to see how it is carried, with the double split sling that Mgs 34 and 42 use, not the MG13.
