    Yep have to agree not British, the leather cup section is incorrect, also the end tips are 5/8" ball tip type, these are a U.S. pattern fitting, the British late WWII style chin cup , uses 3/4" brass end tips and slide buckle, with a single 5/32" rivet through the centre of each tip to secure it onto the webbing strap. Also the chin cup consists of two layers of leather, a Maroon red chromium tanned outer layer, and a veg tanned Chamois layer on the inside face edge.

    Nige.
