Strange Belt ID Help

Recommended Posts

This belt was attached to a perfectly normal US canteen cover that I was after.  

But this belt isn't anything perfectly normal as far as I can tell.

The material seems to be a British P37 type belt, but the hardware is US style.  There are no markings anywhere, on the cloth or metal.

My research hasn't found anything to ID it so lets see if someone here knows what the heck it is. My guess is that it may be some surplus item?  Thanks for looking!

It could be British made.  During the war Britain made US musette bags, map cases, canteen covers and other US web gear.

Somebody on USMF says it is Iraqi. But I haven't been able to confirm it. Which brings up the possibility of it being some kind of euroclone or mideastclone? 

 

Thanks for looking.

I've been looking into Iraqi equipment since you ID'd the belt. Not an area I am familiar with at all. It looks like they used an enormous variety of equipment from all over the place. They must have just bought whatever was for sale. Mind boggling.
