An original 1908 Pattern Webbing Belt as used by the British Army during the First and Second World War, clearly dated 1939.

This pattern of belt was introduced into service with the British Army shortly before the Great War and saw widespread use throughout the conflict. It stayed in Service throughout the inter-war period before being replaced by the 1937 pattern belt in 1938. The 1908 pattern was still issued during the first years of the Second World War with many being used in the BEF and the Western Desert.

This particular example is dated 1939 making it a late production example and ideal for someone who collects Battle for France or BEF period items. Below this the letter 'L' is stamped which denotes the size as large. aThe War Department broad arrow is also present.

The belt is in good condition with only some signs of wear and use. It has clearly been blancoed at some stage with a light green shade, typical of those used in the inter-war period and in the BEF.

All in all a nice original belt in good condition and with a great date.
