Vickers MMG cloth ammo belts

#1
Any ideas where one can get hold of a couple of ammo belts for use with .303" Vickers MMG? And what would they cost?

It's alright, I haven't gone Walt. There's a blerk in Sarf Effrica asking, presumably for "Home Defence" :D

Many thanks.

One on E-Bay in Canada; US$35 at the moment, 7 days to go.

Slightly off thread I know, I was always told as a youngster that the expression "the whole nine yards" comes from the length of a cloth Vickers belt. Anyone know if this is true?

Counter suggestion: of USAAF/RAF origin, refering to the length of the belts stowed in wing panniers of aircraft. Firing off the entirety of one's ammunition would expend the "whole nine yards".
