    SatansCabanaBoy ....what a great find and a great set of straps !....fom left to right, top row.....1) Infantry Regiment '118' 1915 Greatcoat strap, no piping. 2) and 3) not Imperial, likely to be from the Third Reich period, round ends,all Imperial, pointed ends. 4) Pre-war strap from Infantry Regiment '36', a sewn down type, (note lack of machined button hole), private purchase for dark blue tunic. 5) Another strap for the 'Dunkelblau' tunic, pre-war, for Field Artillery Regiment '15'. Bottom row....6) Infantry Regiment '48' 1915 Feldbluse strap, waffenfarbe introduced on these straps indicating for infantry, (previously M07/10 straps the base colour was for Army Korps colour). 7) Infantry Regiment '332' again for the M15 Feldbluse. 8) M15 Feldbluse strap for Fuss-Artillerie (Foot Artillery) Regiment '8'. 9) Another M15 Feldbluse strap for Infantry Regiment '448'. 10) M15 Feldbluse strap for Field Artillery Regiment '59'....... Phew...thats it !
    Prost....Steve.

    Well....thank you so much Steve.
    Apparently I am having quite an interesting turn of events. I really don't make an effort to collect WW1 gear, and I do fine with authenticity...then I put some effort into collecting some TR gear, and I have an extra keen eye for purchasing fakes...lol
