Hi Chris,

a specialist from a German WW1 forum (Feldgrau-Forum) identified it as a rare bandolier for Schneeschuhtruppen from Bavaria later also worn by colleagues from Wurttemberg.

Hello Chris, They looks too narrow  to hold a circular shaped grenade .

Hi,

I would still go with special ammo-pouches. The bags for disk-grenades were larger and were carried on the waistbelt.

Hi,

I am open to all suggestions, Am just collecting all thoughts I have read. One collector said the 1913 and 1915 disc grenades are different sizes, this being the smaller one, quite a few are for ammo pouches.
