    Default Unusual Gunbelt and holster RCAF

    Ok gents, Do I have one for YOU!

    SO, I have this gunbelt and holster. It looks western in styling, brown. That is where the simplicities end.

    The buttons, all of which are gold plated it would appear, say RCAF, and have an eagle and a crown.

    I have been told that it was part of the uniform for the RCAF Cavalry? My grandfather was apparently a member. (I am waiting for a chance to ask him for more details)

    Has anyone seen this before? because last I checked the Canadian air force doesn't fly horses.

    Thanks

    All I can tell you are that the buttons are the "Queen's Crown" type, so are post 1953 in date.

    The buttons look like collar dogs someone has put on a western style gun belt. I don't believe this is any more than a fantasy piece.
