I can, with all due humility, say that I do not have more knowledge on belts than you do, Ben! But, as for the 2 with the brass star buckles, they are definitely 1950's era Bulgarian NCO belts, as shown in the link posted by Paul in #11. I can't really comment on the others, as they could be just about anything. Do they have any markings?

Right gents this thread is going no where so it is now closed
Thread re opened for BenVK
Thank you Ben, appreciate your understanding.
So, as I understand it, all 6 belts are post war Eastern European belts?
My GF is from Lithuania, she doesn't recognise these buckles as Soviet and she should know, one broke her nose in the 1980'.s
I see neither a picture or link posted in the first post?
Can pictures be added so we can discuss?
I could post the pictures again but I think we're done here, agreed Ben?
If you want Ben, I have tried to find pics of post war Bulgarian guys in uniform but theres no reference to them. I presume at that time they were ate up by the Russian Army and probably issued some form of uniform to conform with the Russians but had their own identity as in cap badge and belt buckle, again very hard to get referencing material
Happy to do some research my self into the subject, thanks Ben.
