    In combat the Fin soldier could carry more ammunition by the use of the cotton bandolier, as seen in this photograph. It is made of a strong cotton khaki cloth, and has a simple adjustable buckle. The pockets are large enough to carry ten rounds of ammunition in each pocket. The pockets have a flap, which is held closed by a button. Each button is made of metal and painted black. The buttons are all marked with the words, for gentlemen, and appear to be British trouser fly buttons.

    Breadbag looks good, other than the buttons obviously.

    I have seen lots of odd replacement buttons on field gear and clothing. My Reithose has four different types of buttons! I agree the bag is good and I would not change the buttons. NH

    Personally, I would replace the buttons with originals to enhance its future resale value...otherwise a potential buyer will surely point out the incorrect buttons in an attempt to buy it at a cheaper price...A simple task of restoration, in my opinion...

    hi - only replace the buttons if you try to sell it.

    lots of WW2 Hungarian uniforms (officers' pants, etc.) were made with these "for gentlemen" buttons, so I would say, that they are period replacements - and would keep them...nice bakelite buttons.

    Thanks, Fabe...I was not aware of that, it's my first time seeing such buttons...I assumed they were added postwar, appreciate the clarification, friend!
    cheers, Glenn

    Thank you guys for the info. I didn't know anything about the buttons. Very interesting to know that they excisted for real. Only for gentlemans. I think I won't restore it, as it's quite nice with these buttons plus I don't think I'm gonna sell it. Thanks for the advise anyways
