    Morning all.

    I have found some leather belts in the cellar and am having trouble identifying this one. i am assuming its army air service but have nothing to back this up.

    Thin leather belt with metal buckle and what looks like a prop with wings on it.

    any pointers in the right direction appreciated

    i'm begining to wonder if its home/trench/pow made. the buckle is quite crude. the wings are definately US army air forces (imo)

    Does look like USAAF, but certainly not an official 'issue' belt or buckle.........
