A very good unblancoed and lightly used example of the standard British Army 1908 Pattern Waist Belt, in very good undamaged condition.
First introduced with Webb Equipment Patt. '08, the Waist Belt was 3-inches wide and came in two lengths, Small (40-inches long) and Large (48-inches long). The Belt is fastened by a double Twigg buckle at the front and is adjustable at the buckle end. There are two 2-inch web tabs attached at the rear. These tabs are angled outwards. Each tab has a 2-inch Twigg buckle at the top and a brass tip on the bottom end.
In 1909 a slight modification was made to the Belts where a Medium size as I have here was added to the inventory and eyeletted tips added on the rear tabs.
This example is marked M, M.W.& S Ltd 1918.
