    Default Fire Fighters Belt Lehmann & Wundenberg

    Hello Gents,

    I am not exactly sure where I post this so if I am off please let me know or push the post to the correct section. Thanks


    I won this on ebay. I don't have it in hand. But I have been looking high and low on the net to see it being worn ect.

    I am thinking it may be a imperial or pre ww2 example

    It has a sold makers name, looks to have proper wear for age and decent storage.

    Would this be worn in action or for parade ect,

    any help would be awesome
    Thanks in Advance

    I will also send more pics when it in hand

    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

    A very nice piece.

    These belts (known as Feuerwehrgurt or Hakengurt in German) were worn in action.

    This one is of pre-Third Reich vintage; TR-era models were of a different design (fully made of black leather, with a single twin-claw buckle etc.).

    Thanks. I figured It was Pre-TR. I am happy I was able to make a good call on this one.

    It's not a particularly clear image and may not be the exact same model of belt, but after Google-ing around for a bit myself, this is the best I can offer:
