    Default Help needed: German Tropical Belt

    Posting for a friend:

    "I recently acquired a German Afrika Korps Belt ( perhaps better called a tropical belt) with a British Divisional sign stitched to it. I'd be grateful for any help in identifying the blue/red sign, which might point to the theatre it came from. i.e North Africa or perhaps Fallschirmjager / Italy. Many thanks"

    Cheers Guys
