This M-1910 hook fastener/grommet system was used universally (with U. forces) from its adoption in 1910 until the M1956 Lightweight Load Carrying Equipment was adopted with its slide fasteners, later used with ALICE packs and related equipment.Early pre-war equipment had snap fasteners, but long before World War II most standard equipment utilized LTD (Lift the Dot) fasteners.

The pistol belt was intended for soldiers who were not riflemen such as officers or crews of tanks or other equipment.

On left side, between first two sets of grommets, was a large snap fastener.

Even new-pattern equipment like the M-1943 intrenching tool covers were made in older khaki or OD #3 canvas or webbing. Made of khaki webbing and canvas duck, this basic system had an equipment belt (cartridge or pistol), supported by suspenders that clipped to the belt on each side of the front buckle and in the middle of the back.

The M-1910 Haversack (pack) and straps could take the place of the suspenders.

(one vershok = 44.45 mm) My belt measures about 43 mm wide, but you need to remember, a measurement of one vershok is not going to be as accurete as a measurement of 44.45 mm, and there is shrinkage to consider over the years. The ersatz buckle is one vershok tall, and took a belt that was 3/4 vershok wide.

Hey Fireman, The Russians did have a steel buckel, it was a plain steel rectangle with the belt loop and hook on the back, I do not know if it was painted or not, but I suspect it was, this was for territorial troops. I have started to look at them and I want to make sure I don't get a repop or something.

I have a couple of questions about Russian WW1 filed belts. Cloth bando as a belt:eek: Do you have a picture or link of that? All other belt plates I have seen are brass, usually with the Romanov eagle for infantry, anf the egale over the anchor for navy, the eagle over crossed axes for pioneer, the eagle over crossed cannons for artillery, a flaming bomb for grenadier (no eagle). It seems that the current Russian military is issuing a belt plate in brass with a double headed eagle. Hey Fireman, Here are a few photos of WWI period Russian belt plates, I have not seen any of the new ones, but if they are constructed like the Soviet belt plates, I would think they are of thinner brass, and with a much smother finish, and the belt hook is af a different shape.

I was under the impression that all Czarist/Russian troops in WW1 were always issued the the double headed eagle/Romanov brass belt buckle. There were also belt plates with cyphers for kadet schools. The Russian belt blate is easily identifyed from the Austro-Hungarian belt buckle by the construction, the Austrian buckle is basicly the same design as the German buckles, where the Russian buckle is a flat plate with the belt loop and hook soldered to the back, the Double headed eagles are very similar, but the Russian eagle has several coats of arms on it's wings, and the Austrian eagle does not.

Recently I have seen/read about a roller buckle similiar to the WW2 issue leather belt. Hey Fireman, The Russian soldiers were issued what ever was at hand, sometimes the belt would be a cloth bandoleer, the single or double pronged roller buckel was used when suplies of the standard belt and plate were not available, no soldier was stopped from going to the front because he lacked a bit of equipment. I can not find the photo of the bandoleer tied around the waist, I think it may have been in one of the Coilier's photo books on the European war, I will keep my eyes open and post it if I can find it, if I recall, it was the classic photo of three Russian captured soldiers, none of them had the same equipment or clothing, if I recall correctly, only one had boots, one had foot wraps, and the other was barefoot. Best wishes Gsu I just recieved my example of the steel ersatz Russian belt buckle, and with it, a standard belt buckle that turned out to be a brass plated over a non magnetic steel alloy, my guess is that it is a similar alloy to the steel used in the US helmets.
