Czechoslovakian D-Ring Belt-Loops
In my never ending quest for bits and pieces to use to outfit the BGS bike and the accompanying uniform, I found a source for original issue, Czechoslovakian, D-Ring Belt-Loops............... a bulk purchase in lots of 20 for a a price I couldn't pass up! I picked up one batch and now they're upstairs in the "staging area" ready for use. They were supposed to be "new & never issued", but turned out to be used in pretty good to good condition. No matter what, they were still a good find.
These loops were worn on the field belt and used to hang equipment from or when inverted, to attach the Y-strap suspenders to when ammo pouches were not worn. These are nearly identical to the WW2 and Post-WW2 German D-rings, except these are riveted instead of being sewn..
