Hello, These bits have got myself and a few other collectors stumped as to what exactly they are. 1) 1958 pattern, loop strap with clip, "MECo 1973" + 'black ring' mark. 2) 1939 pattern (if it isn't Mule tack!?), 2inch wide utility strap with 3 bar buckle and loop on rear for 2 inch strap/belt at 90', "BHG 1943". Does anyone knows the exact purposes of these and/or where they went on the webbing, please? Cheers, Jim.
