    I guess it's pretty much close to impossible to know the truth.
    The question would be "why" a two piece buckle could not be used in combat as they were not sturdy enough to bear the weight of the equipment and the rigors of combat, also why attach a leather support tab to a parade buckle that has no weight to bear? IMO the tab has been added to give value to the buckle
