Yes these WWII straps are not so common these days. I'm glad i bought quite a few many years ago.
This is a great buy, congrats...

As for the name, it has been rubbed off.
It says: "Grenadier Voell...."
Now at least you know the rank
Hi Jerry, I thought it might read Grenadier, so thanks for the confirmation.

I'll echo the previous sentiments. 45 quid for this? Great pick up! I've been tempted to buy at double that - and they are not nearly in as good condition.
