Guys,

Got this one yesterday. I have never seen one this large, it would fit a 38 to 48 inch waist, he must have been a proper fat lad!

Note the attachments for the shoulder strap so it is pre-dates 1939 although this one has no markings that I can see.

Perhaps it was Goering's belt :-)

It is a beautiful LW Belt. Do you have a tunic to put it on?

Hello : Erich v Manstein in his book Verlorene Siegen (lost victories ) saids that the shoulder belt was a piece of the leather equipment of the officers introduced by General Heye during his time at the front of the Heeresleitung (1926 1930 ) and the strap was called Hautana the name of a well known manufacture of brassieres . it was abolished during the war with Poland .
