    WW1 German Army Bread Bag Strap

    WW1 German Army Bread Bag Strap

    THE MILITARIA DEALERS


    A scarce WW1  German Bread Bag Strap in excellent condition.

    True WW1 Bread Bag Straps in good condition such as this are very difficult to find, they are however an important piece of kit since they were used by all Infantry in the assault to support the weight of the cartridge Pouches since German Infantry did not have "Y straps" in WW1. The cartridge Pouches were usually supported by the Pack, but the Pack was not used in the assault, so the Bread Bag Strap was used instead. As such a Bread Bag Strap is the classic item for a German Infantry "in the assault" display as numerous period photos show

    The Strap is complete and undamaged. The original field grey colour is near perfect, not washed out as is commonly the case, whilst the canvas itself is very strong, with the often-missing extra canvas loop still stitched in position. The crucial brown leather ends are very good and the sprung clips themselves are strong and fully functioning. 

    An essential but hard to find piece of WW1 German equipment, it would be difficult to upgrade this example.
