Russian Belt, Is It WW2 Period?
Hello, I have a question about this Russian belt and buckle, is it an original ww2 period belt and buckle or a post war? It looks like an original ww2 period to me, but I would like some other opinions please. Also, what are some good ww2 Russian reference books you would recommend for Russian ww2 period flight gear? (I collect Russian ww2 period flight gear and I am somewhat interested in Russian ww2 period red army soldier gear. I have many photos on Russian ww2 flight gear, but I have no reference books on this subject). Thanks in advance for any help.

It is the correct pattern. These are now reproduced. I am not convinced this one is real.
Sorry I don't know of any books on flight gear alone. The best overall book is by our own forum member Phillipe.

OK I understand. This has been helpful. Thank you Adrian.
Thank you again for your advice. I have ordered Phillipe's book, I hope to get it in about a week. I look forward to learning from his research.
