The lanyard is total length about 34 cm. it is made from one piece of cord. The centre braid is 15cm then one end is 10cm the other is 8.5/9.0 cm.

it went from a main tunic button to the shoulder.

picture 5 above shows the knotted end- a clever unstitched tuck knot. That end is unbroken just knotted then returns

picture 6 above shows the only stitching required to complete to work. It is discreetly tucked in the end of the braid work.

the balls are solid and bristly. Each end with puncture holes for the threading of the suspending cords/lanyard that allowed them to hang.

the two larger are 4cm diameter the odd one is 3cm in width.

i acquired these and the CDV together along with a number of Alpine related items -some military and some I suppose are not.

Hi Gents

i am no longer so sure the lanyard is related. 

It now seems obvious to me that in all pictures I find they appear darker, that mine appears too light in colour.

different weave but reassuring to me none the less.

Dear Tony, I didn't expect you to speak in this post. I think I need to help you eliminate the "zero reply." It seems that I need a "photo bomber" to bomb it. Don't be too cold!

In addition, I have seen the green color of this shooting rope. What is it?

i believe green marksmanship awards were issued to Jägertruppe. Certainly green wool balls but I’m not sure if the colour of the lanyard/rope was also green.

Also I believe green was issued to pioneers but for skills other than marksmanship. 

Love the pictures as always

cheers
