Can you identify these high top boots?

I have more information on these boots and I am not sure if they are military or not. Stamped on the inside is the maker which may be Henry. There also is a stamp under the maker name that is CONTRACTOR. Another stamp reads BOSTON DEPOT. And what looks like a date is 9-63. I am pretty sure the brown color and toe cap is not 1963 vintage. Please clarify if these stampings are military or not. On the sole is stamped the size 10B, NO.24 and QMC USA. I am thinking the QMC may be Quarter Master ? which would be a military type stamping. Also the lacing is 10 eyelets and 10 hooks for a total of twenty pair of fastners. The thinking was that these boots were M-1931/1932 military boots and now I am wondering if they are just 'boots'. Any additional information would be appreciated. Thanks. boots1.jpg

Here is a photo of the boots now. I stuffed them with newspaper and laced them up. Brushed them off with a shoe brush, nothing else (no polish etc). The lighting and black background enhance them some but they still are very nice boots. I hope you enjoy looking at them. Thanks.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
