An original Royal Navy Class II waist belt dating from around the Second World War.
This Class II belt was introduced in 1924 with this modified pattern replacing the original in 1935. An austerity pattern was introduced in 1945 making this belt the ideal pattern for WW2.
The belt is made from a navy blue coloured cotton canvas and features a pocket to the front which closes with two pop studs. It features a metal buckle to allow the belts size to be adjusted and a chrome plated buckle to the front. Due to its adjustable nature the belt will fit between a 24" and 24" waist.
The belt is in worn condition but still displays well. The most notable wear is to the tongue which passes through the buckle. The Brass eyelet which takes the single prong of the buckle is still present and functioning as it should.
A nice WW2 period belt which would make a good addition to a Royal Navy collection.
