    I received this today. I'm guessing it's a Pattern 08 belt based on its layout.

    No markings anywhere at all.

    Is there any significance to the black color? The interior side of the belt is a dark olive green.

    It is a 1908 Pattern Waistbelt although unfortunately it has had its original tan coloured khaki drill webbing coloured. In its original state there would have been a date stamp, manufacture's mark and size all printed in black on the inside rear of the belt. These belts were manufactured from 1908 until the early 1940s and price is usually determined by the manufacturer, date and condition of the belt which in this case has been negated due to the colouring.

    These belts have passed through numerous armies, users, prop houses and collectors so the colouring could have been done by anyone.

    Could it be Irish Free State?  They blackened their 1908 patt webbing in the 1920s.  Not sure if this could be determined from the markings, if any.
