Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Have come into possession of this and was wondering; what is it, from what era/army etc! Seems to be a bandolier.

  2. Agreed, it held 50 rds of .303 in clips, 10 rds to a pouch. They used to hang another one around the horses neck in fact.
  3. So it would probably date to the First World War?
  4. Yes,I've seen pics of my Gradads unit in WW 1

  5. Looks like it could do with a bit of TLC, i would give it a clean with saddle soap and then hide feed.
    If however you don't happen to have any of that ,you could use the stuff you can get for cleaning leather sofas etc, help preserve it a little longer.
