    Thanks for the info Rob. Obviously I knew it was made in 43, but did not know the maker.

    Here is a special one from my collection. This belt and holster was worn by Sgt Don Turner, XXI Indep. Para Coy. It once housed a M1911A1 Colt .45. Don kindly gave me this. He is still alive and doing well.

    I cannot recall the maker and don't have a pic on file.

    Cheers, Ade.
