Hi all, i recently acquired a group of WW1 leather officers equipment, Sam Browne, pouches etc. This item was included, i though it may be a belt attachment for carrying equipment but i am unsure. Has anyone got any ideas as to what this item may be? Any help would be very much appreciated.

Many Thanks
