Would the Marines at Wake, Philippines, Guam, and Pearl Harbor be wearing the 1923 pattern on Dec 7, 1941?

Only if carrying the 1903, they would. They were using M1941 or P41 suspenders with that belt.

Other weapons would require the M1936 pistol belt or the BAR gunners belt.

USMC, along with the US Army, were using plenty of older WWI "left over's" during the time of the Pearl Harbor attack. Much WWI gear remained in use well into the WWII years. Large numbers of WWI pistol belts, canteens and .45 magazine pockets remained in use until the end of WWII. "Uncle" didn't like to waste things back in those days.

WWI .45 mag pouches are STILL available.

Yes the M1910 belt would have been around as well, as well as the M1917 suspenders.

Are they EVER!! I found one at an estate sale, with a 'Nam era one and a leather general officer's. Apparently the WWI job is by far the least valuable, even spiffy new.

That kind of startled me. The leather one is from 1940.

We used the khaki web gear until the 1970"s when gear ran short. 2nd 8" Howitzer BTRY wore khaki gear for an IG inspection in 1975 at Camp Lejeune. Also the later issue green as well as the vietnam nylon. We used what we had. All the packs were WWII dated.
