Title Leather holster (Browning automatic pistol, M35)
Nationality Belgian
Period c 1940
Price £30.00

This holster, which was for the model 1935 high power Browning, would appear to be have been a captured Belgian (or Dutch?) piece - Kriegsmarine and Luftwaffe used this type of holster and, in early photos, I have seen it being worn by German troops during the opening stages of WW2. The name 'Brenner' is inked inside.

The leatherwork indicates extremely heavy service wear: some of the stitching on the back has worn away, but it is neatly held together by two rivets. It has certainly seen hell and high water in service!

Helmet arrived safely and am pleased with it.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
