    Nice stuff - possibly the green tent sheet is BW?

    Is the belt not wrongly assembed?  On example I have the centre rear joining strap is the other way up so that the wire hanger holes are at the bottom of the joining piece, not at the top.

    Nice peice though.

    (I view this belt as being a Heavy Barreled (FALO) FN FAL belt rather than a BAR belt.  AFAIK ABL were not using BAR at this time.  They did have some FN Model D at this time (which some view as a BAR derivative, other say it is a different weapon entirely) but I have only ever seen this belt photographed by a trooper clearly carrying  an FN FALO heavy barreled FAL. )

    I think the eyelets on the centre section are an unconscious holdover from the original US BAR belts, where they were oriented at the top to accept the rear snap hook from the M1910 haversack. I don't think they really serve much purpose on the Belgian belts either way.
