Re: tropical belt

It's a later lighter grade webbing tropical belt that has an earlier 1941 period tab attached and it would have been issued to Heer, KM and LW troops.

Re: tropical belt

Yep - I call this 'fish-roe' weave. Not as common as the three diamond pattern which saw introduction in 1941 but still original.

Re: tropical belt

Hi Mark
thanks for your contribution.
Please can you explain to me what do you mean with fish-roe weave and the differences with other pattern?
