It looks like a very faded sun-bleached RAMC belt to me.

I agree with Hoot, check under the edge of the leather work if the colours are red, blue and yellow then it is RAMC, regards Dennis

Thanks for the three replies.

Follow your tip and opened the belt a little more (he must have been skinny) and as you said colours are red/blue/sand.

I'd say RAMC (fadded?) Officer's Belt as O/R has a metal hasp while Officer rank have 2 x leather and buckle (P.S. Not all Corps/Reg use the metal hasp). Hope my 2 peneth worth helps.

All ranks (Offrs & ORs) wore leather buckle until all changed to metal.

Hi Jonathan

Came across the website www.stablebelts.co.uk who lists your belt as RAMC Pre. 1971

Regards

Ian

Worn well into the turn of the century by some.
