    Scarce 1944 Dated Austerity Pattern RAF Webbing Belt

    Item details


    A scarce original 1944 Dated RAF Austerity Pattern Webbing Belt in good condition.

    This rare belt is identical to the British Army economy Pattern belt except in RAF blue. It features Webbing securing straps rather than the usual brass ones found on a 1937 Pattern belt. The construction on the inside of the belt where the brass prongs are fitted is again the same as the Army economy Pattern and was only used on economy belts.

    Inside the belt bares the makers name ‘Bagcraft’ and the manufacture date of 1944. The is also the letters ‘RAF’ and a service number written in ink.

    The overall condition of the belt is very good. The rear buckles have been removed so it has clearly been worn as a best belt or for ‘revue order’ (with a bayonet and frog fitted). The belt has had a coat of the correct shade of RAF blue blanco at some stage in its life. There is one stain to the outside of the belt which I have photographed.

    This is a very rare wartime belt and the first that I have come across. A must have for the wartime RAF or Webbing collector!
