    Hy mates...

    this is my most recent Fleamarket find.
    Not sure about it, only that it is a quite antique leather Mexican made Ammo Pouch Belt.

    I like to think that it could have been used during the Mexican Revolution, be it by a Federales or a Pancho Villa Man

    Maybe somebody has a comment about it, just wanted to share this rare piece,,

    Cheers..
    Dan

    Just stumbled across this Dan.

    That is a hefty piece. Looks great!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    I had one of those in black leather some years ago, with black leather suspenders built in and as I recall, it also had a permanently affixed leather hanger for bayonets or other gear. I'm guessing 1920s through WW2 period, as it is a leather version of the US Model 1917 cartridge belt. Whatever the case, a very interesting piece and quite hard to find. Living down here in Texas, you would think more Mexican military stuff would be on the market, but not the case, at least not in my experience. The number of Mexican military pieces I've had over the years I could count on one hand and still have a few fingers left. Thanks for posting.

    You may want to reach out to the Pancho Villa State Park Museum or the Columbus Depot Museum both of which are located in Columbus, New Mexico. This is the town that was raided by Villa and his men in March 1916.

    They have some great artifacts as well as items from the Villista's that were found on the battlefield after the raid.

    Your belt looks similar to this set-up at the Columbus Depot Museum.

    post WW2 from 50s-60s. Shoulder straps and bayonet frog were removed. This US style replaced a model based on the SW Afrika Schutztruppe belts from 20s/30s-40s and earlier bandoliers from revolution era were different. It appear in many photos of units armed with Mauser rifles during the 1968 student protests.
