    My wife knew that I had lost my origional OR's stable belt a good few years back so when she saw this one for sale on ebay she bought it as a replacement bless her and it came with a bonus it came with an officers belt as well.
    The first picture is of my OR's belt and beret the second is of the officers belt

    nice find, whats up with the triple buckle? how'd that come about

    also, what is the historical signicifance of having OR and officer designs for the stable belt? from what i know other infantry regts (post 2006) dont seem to do it

    The colours come from the regimental colours and the colours of the lace and facings on the uniforms of the 37th (North Hampshire) Regiment of Foot and 67th (South Hampshire) Regiment – the colours of the new regiment being yellow, red, green and mauve (in that order) on a black background. These colours are the combination of those from the 37th and the 67th. The colours of the 37th were yellow and black (the Duke of Orange’s streamer) with a lace of yellow and red, and the colours of the 67th were yellow and crimson with a lace of yellow, green, and mauve. Both regiments wore yellow facings and therefore yellow became the senior colour and accordingly the soldier’s belt is the right way up when the yellow is to the top.
    As to the triple buckle Im not shure as there are 3 versions of the OR's stable belt 1st version has a brass 2 lobe buckle 2nd version has a brass 3 lobe buckle and the 3rd and final version has a bronze 3 lobe buckle My OR's belt is a second version and the officers is a 3rd version. and I honestly never looked into the reason for the diferance between the officers ond OR's belts its just the way it was.

    Thanks Gary My wife did well she recognised the OR's stable belt by matching the colours on my Regimental tie (which BTW she hates) but bless her she knew how much I wanted a replacement the O type belt was a bonus I dont know what im going to do with it as of yet I might keep it or I might sell it I have to decide
