Title Y-straps
Nationality German
Period c 1939
Price £125.00

This is the standard German leather harness for supporting ammunition pouches carried either side of the belt buckle on the leather waistbelt worn by all members of the armed forces, other ranks at any rate, including naval and Luftwaffe units in ground roles. There is a faint but legible RB number stamped on one of the forward leather straps.

The leatherwork is still in good order and supple throughout. All the stitching is intact except on the leather toggles at the base of the forward facing straps, which has become a little loose with age. The backstrap has a few mouse nibbles on one side. The ironwork is patinated with age, but is still essentially sound. An hour or so with emery paper would improve this lot considerably.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.
