    Took a bit of selling to purchase this! True army paratrooper bandoleer. These were unique for airborne soldiers. The integral frog & suspenders make it paratrooper model. There are a few other variations used by army & cavalry. In my 30 + yrs this is the third I've seen & few others that have had the suspenders/ shoulder straps cut off. I suspect either by the paratroopers for greater comfort in the field or by GI's off the deceased.

    This is sweetness Jareth!!! Very nice and excellent condition. Congrats. I know you really wanted this beauty. It will look great with your other Japanese Para equiptment!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Very nice Jareth. I've only seen two of these in person. One was in used condition but still nice with a name tag (see photos) and the other was absolutely like new but the frog and suspenders had been removed.
    Looks like yours is Nagoya marked and dated Showa 16

    I have no idea what "furo" means in this case; normally 風呂 (ふろ/furo) means bath .

    Thanks for the translation. I hoped for years that this one would one day be in my collection but alas, someone else got it.
