    The naval infantry is the same as the infantry, the same equipment. But there was designed special uniforms overall like. If someone interested I can post here some drawings. Never seen original example.

    1941/42 or 1944 battles in Sevastopol? OR, the postwar - Cold War years where there was specialised Marine Battalions stationed in the (closed) region?

    Hi Daniel, the Maxim belt in cloth is hard to obtain. I am lucky to have one for my Maxim.

    Have you thought about using a cheaper to find Vickers belt? There is not much difference between them. See the pic of my Vickers belt with inert.303 rounds.

    But not every man wore them anyway. It is just a classic image though

    Cheers, Ade.

    I am in the middle of creating an impression of a Naval infantryman, ca-1941. I do not know WHAT I am waiting for to complete it...

    Anyway, I was lucky to find a decent pair of Maxim belts thanks to a Russian associate. I believe there are still some out there to be had...

    I'd be more than happy to do some inquiring for you. PM me if you are interested.
