    Hi Andy, it is a belt cross strap. (Like on a Sam Brown belt) Goes over the shoulder and would clip onto two D rings worn on the belt. Political and not military, most likely HJ issue.

    Cheers, Ade.

    They sell for about 45 here in the UK.

    Just a final snippet of info, the maker of the clips was Friedrich Linden, Ludenscheid.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Andy, if it does not really fit into the theme of your collection you could always sell it here on the forum? We have several HJ collectors here. Price it competitively and put the money towards something for your collection.

    Cheers, Ade.
