    To be honest I've never seen anything like them!

    Try posting them on Great War Forum.

    I am not sure there is a military connection to these straps. Could be commercial straps that will not ever be known for what.

    Got to be military as they have the Broad Arrow stamped on them as well as the maker mark M.E. CO for Mills Equipment Company.

    I see you got your answer on GWF... I thought very much on the same lines as being converted straps, but being unsure - having never seen anything remotely like them - I didn't want to commit myself. I'm glad you got a reasonable explanation though.

    Cheers,

    I haven't read the "answer on GWF" but looking at that spilt pin riveting I can't believe that was done by the Mills company. Most likely a field adaption or a post war adaption for transportation purposes.

    On the GWF they think they are USA straps used on Jeeps for stowing kit, and maybe adapted from Mills webbing.
