    Hi Guys.

    I believe this is a Danish Air force Belt, I'm not too sure of the issue date of this, any other ideas you have,would be great. Thanks for looking. Wink

    Dear Mr. Gee,
    I'm affraid I don't recognize the crown, the eagle or the camo on the canvas belt.

    Can the buckle have been clipped on a later belt, because it looks substantially older and like it's been well polished many a time.

    But I'm not a Danish AF expert, so give me a few days and I'll ask around.

    Cheers and take care

    Ooops I genuinely thought it was Danish, I must admit I was a little suspicious about the camo canvas belt, but thought the buckle was Danish!!! scratch


    Thanks for looking Ronny, maybe back to the drawing board on this one Laughing

    Hi Rich, as before I'm suspicious about the webbing belt it'self , like you I believe its a commercial or fashion item, the buckle caught my eye literally, I was told it was Danish...buy the item not the story Rolling Eyes Laughing

    Gary,
    The canvas belt is probably unoriginal and new, I agree.
    But the buckle may have some provenance as the eagle looks rather like the early logo of Danish rescue services Falck - now part of Group4/Falck - they and 'Zonen' (or 'The Zone', what a name!) where the two dominant resque- and ambulance services in Denmark before, during and after WW2. They were both 'purveyor of services to the Kingdom of Denmark' which might explain the crown.

    It may or may not be a really old Falck belt buckle and that would make it Danish after all, though not military or even AF. But with even 15 min. of Google'ing I've found nothing substantial. Maybe scour 'Falck', 'belt buckle' and 'vintage' longer and harder than I did?

    Cheers!
