DRK Buckle w/De Valk Belt
A recent addition, a nice Ges Gesch 1 (maker unknown) Deutsche Rote Kreuz buckle w/De Valk Belt. J. De Valk A.Dam belt occupation made in Amsterdam. Overall very nice condition to the set, and the buckle and belt look as if they have been together a long time. I added a few pics of the same belt in mint condition for comparison

According to regulations since early 1936 (anyway since April 1) a black belt had to be worn
(Durchführung der Bekleidungsvorschriften für die Mitglieder des Deutschen Roten Kreuzes zum Übungsdienst).
It was said: vorhandenes helles umfärben!
In the D.R.K. Dv. Nr.1 from 1938 it is said as:
"Leibriemen mit Schulterriemen aus schwarzem Leder, Dienstgrade vom DRK-Anwärter bis DRK-Haupthelfer mit
Kastenschloss (the form as shown in this thread), Führer mit Führerschloss, Generalführer Führerschloss und
Beschläge des Schulterriemens in Gold".
One should note earlier a double-claw was worn (anstatt der Dornschnalle). Note from "Uniformen-Markt",
nr. 4 from February 15, 1938. Page 53.
"Wir sollen auch unser Leben für die Brüder lassen" (1.Joh.3.16):
zum Gedächtnis Wilhelm Schenk. Er starb fürs Vaterland am 13. Juni 1916
nice buckle and nice belt but don't match together ..........
The belt would IMO match to a police or luftwaffe buckle .
I hold a luftwaffe rig with similar belt ...........
For now, have 3 choices at hand. Buckle 1 has wrong type catch, Buckle 3 is too minty for a match. So, Buckle 2 has the correct belt catch and is the winner until/unless a better example arrives
you have some great buckles Weller.
Otherwise, the belt may be a better match on this nice 1939 ABL Luft buckle. What do others say here, opinions appreciated cool Militaria
Looks good with the lufty buckle!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
Ok, the Dutch belt in now matched to the ABL Luftwaffe, and has now joined the Luftwaffe group! cool Militaria I've seen a DRK black belt and will now add that to the "hunt" list.
Cheers and thanks for the info!
