    Default Dagger in wear

    Hi,

    I know some uniforms had the dagger slot with and without the leather strap, but how was the dagger worn using this slot ? I tried getting the idea with the period photos but it only makes sense with the dagger having a carrier.

    Thanks !
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    I do not know what you mean by the leather strap.

    If you mean the leather hanger on a SA, NSKK or SS dagger, the same would be true as to that used on a military uniform except with a ring instead of a snap.

    Here is the strap in the dagger slot as part of the tunic - forestry in this case.

    Thanks !
