    Can anyone share some info on Warsaw Pact / Soviet belt?

    Post by cross_contamination on Sat Sep 04, 2010 7:37 am

    Hi all,
    I just wanted to say hi to everyone here. I'm from Australia and have a modest collection - my persoanl preference is WWII gear, althouhg I doubt my expertise is anything like the experts here haha.

    For my first post, I'm wondering if anyone can help share more light on an item. This belt was given to me by my dad after a trip to Berlin, post Wall coming down.

    It's a leather belt and has some cyrlic on the inside. Which Eastern Bloc forces would it have been issued it? How common is it? And can anyone translate the cyrilic?

    Thanks in advance.

    G'Day,

    Down in South Oz here, where are you? Belt is a Russian officer's 'Sam Browne' belt. Not uncommon as far as militaria goes but starting to become uncommon (at least in Australia) as the post-cold war militaria has started to dry up.

    Cheers,

    Fil

    I'd guess Soviet as well. I have a Yugoslav belt that is pretty much identical to this one, however I don't think they would have had Cyrillic only writing in 1980s.

    The belt says Leningrad on it with "Marxist" written in parentheses below and looks to be dated 1989. Definitely Soviet.
