    This belt is clearly patterned after a GI BAR magazine belt. I suspect, based on the hardware, canvas, and colour, that it may be Greek or Italian. I have seen at least one identical example with faked "ME Co 1944 - British Made" markings, so someone has tried to pass off postwar belts as a scarce wartime British-made item. This one has no markings.

    I have seen, and own, other variants of Greek-made belts, but I am leaning toward Italy on this one. Any thoughts?

    I can't say yes or no for certain, but I can't see any features that stand out as ROK.
