    Some Belgian items, beret ID's needed

    Post by michelwijnand on Sun Oct 08, 2017 10:32 am

    A number of Belgian pieces in here, I don't know what units the berets could be from.

    From the rest it's just the headover scarf, green canteen and the holster in the middle that are Belgian.
    The 2 pouches bottom right came from a load of Belgian stuff, but don't look issue to me.




    1952 Dated greatcoat, were ones with the gold buttons actually used in the field, or just for other duties?

    Berets have been answered elsewhere, the brown one is infantry (Stormfuseliers) but the dark brown may be something about Korea.
    The one with the yellow part is Jagers te Paard

    Well I did see one before at a fair, it had been used by a marine, but that same marine also told the seller that it came from another country, but not which.

    The seller had more stuff from the same guy, some Dutch some British.

    I'll make some better pics of it later

    I am pretty sure that I have seen this type of holster in a least one KMarns photo from the 1960s or 1970s. As for its country of origin, I have no evidence on which to base a theory. But it does look to be rather well made.

    I am very interested in the shelter half! Any markings on it? I have a 1980s Belgian navy Dension style smock in this pattern.

    I'll get it back out of storage tomorrow to check it over some more, possibly make some more pics.
    For some reason I put it in a stack of stuff I already checked over and brought it to my "depot", while I didn't mean to

    Took a day extra, yesterday I had a 14h workday, so there wasn't a whole lot of time left.

    I made pics of the details that matter, like the eyelets, toggles and tabs.

    Here's some pics of the tiger/lizard one. It's in the same cut as the Yugo/Serb ones, but has some differences, more on that below.

    The toggle to fasten the bottom point when worn as poncho has a round fabric reinforcement in another color.
    Toggles are all little tubes with a slit in the middle.










    Serb M93, bottom-point toggle has a square fabric reinforcement in matching color to the tent.
    Toggles are solid and tapered.
    Big eyelets have a wider flange.







    Yugo/Serb OD, forgot to look at the bottom-point toggle, but it's probably square like the other Yugo/Serb ones.
    Toggles are solid and tapered.
    Big eyelets have a wider flange.





    Yugo MOL, bottom-point toggle has a square fabric reinforcement in matching color to the tent.
    Toggles are solid and tapered.
    Big eyelets look almost the same as the mystery tent's.





    I forgot where I put the Serb tigerstripe one, but I can find it sometime later.
    I do remember it having the wide flanged big eyelets.
