    Most likely done for wear as POW's or done so they could be used postwar for work wear. It looks like it was done sometime ago.

    I have a Luftwaffe buckle which I know was defaced by the POW owner.

    Good items none the less. I like them. What I don't like is how someone has cleaned off paint to show the makers details, that is criminal.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thank you for the quick reply.

    That all makes perfect sense.

    I agree on your point of the further damage to show the makers details, but it was as is when given to me.

    Thanks again.

    Tobruk,

    I have been to Russia to dig out German positions, and on several occasions we found that Russian Soldiers used German belts and buckles but they remove the fascist symbols. Also after the war it was strictly forbidden to have any fascist items around you or your home. We spoke to many vets and diggers about this.
    Cheers!
