Article about: I know that dating Sam Browne belts has always been a bit problematic, but i noticed something today (doubt I'm the first) that got me thinking. Most of mine are ww2+, but I'm sure some are

    Not sure if it's any help, but the following is the official description from the 1931 Dress Regulstions (India):

    I have two SB belts, one rounded type and one with no stitching in that area at all! Neither have any makers marks or dates.

    Just picked one up with square hangers and round stitching (marked "hand sewn, London)…....
    So that's that theory out!
    Thanks everyone.

    Finally understood exactly what you were referring to with the round v pointed stitching, I have two pointed and one with none, though the latter is thinner and might possibly not be British military used?

    I noticed looking again at the Kharkee web site that they show a WWII belt with stud inline with the riveted rings and also the same for a WWI belt with double straps so perhaps that feature is not an aid to dating SB belts.
