Luftwaffe belt and buckle set (R.S & S)
Hi, also picked this one up from Malcolm Bowers (M & T Militaria), a 1940 dated "R. Sieper & Sohne Ludenscheid" buckle with a 90cm sized 1940 dated LBA (S) (Sonneberg Luftwaffe depot I believe) belt marked "L. KRUMM-AG OFFENBACH M1940". Looked on the map and Ludenscheid and Offenbach are not a million miles apart, would be nice to think they had always been together...
The catch on the belt is marked "D & O" if anyone knows what that is?
This and the other "L" marked buckle I just posted came from the estate of a deceased UK collector and are believed to have sat in his collection for the last 40 years.

Nice buckle and belt Paul, ref the marking on the hook is it D&C? If so Dransfled & Co Menden, the "O" might be a "C" just have a check
Hi Ben, many thanks for having a look. I ordered the belt and it arrived this morning, very pleased with it! I've added some pictures of the catch, I think you are right, it seems to read "D & C", just with a very closed C font style? It was the dealer that said "D & O" and I didn't have a picture of it so was going on what he said. Dransfled & Co Menden it is!
Best regards, Paul
