    Hi Guys any ideas on this harness ?



    It has a brass roll pin belt buckle and 2 leg loops secured by brass buckles all very 37 pattern style.
    It has been modernised by the addition of a white nylon rope and 2 plated snap gate clips not shown.

    Essentially it looks like a climbing or safety harness.

    Hmm, an interesting item.

    It does look like a safety harness but not a climbing or work at height type and I doubt it is a "Fall" harnes as the single 'D' ring doesn't look robust enough to stop a falling man.

    From what can be seen in the pics the modified rope attachment looks pretty professional and just the kind of thing done to prolong service life.

    My instinct is pointing me towards a Royal Navy item designed to stop a man being lost overboard from the deck of a ship. What do you reckon?

    Regards

    I did show it to a dealer friend I know and he also suggested Navy so you may be onto something Mark. I shall do some more digging and see what I can find.
