    G'day All

    I have this belt '45 dated. My question is about the weave/style, I have a few belts but this is the only one like it I've ever seen, is it a common type?

    Regards

    Thanks Colt45, but I'm not sure what you mean by "in between the wars"

    Hi René, I must admit I have never seen that style of weave before either. But I don't see anything wrong with it.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Lee, I considered that too, but British made belts I have owned in the past had a different British style of buckle used on them. Similar to those used on Brit 37 pattern webbing. But it could be a real possibility. I am hoping Nige will see this thread as he has studied webbing in more detail than me.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks All, so far on your replies, I just dug the belt up again for some additional shots for you.
    I thought it was just me that hadn't seen this type before!

    I guess the extra pictures are no positive help on this one? The fittings are all typical US mfg.
    -now I'm totally stumped

    Hi René,

    I have seen these weaveless Model 1936 belts before, if I can remember correctly mostly late war. They are good. Belts with a webbed aluminum female buckle are all WWII. As to why they do not have the typical weave pattern I have no idea.
