Original set of Overcoat straps
You may use the pictures of your own use, but if you print in anything including the Web please list them as part of my collection.
This is more than likely the rarest pieces of leather you can own. One of the reasons may be these were not issued with the knapsack but were listed as a separate item on the Ordnance receipts. There are knapsack found all over the place but overcoat straps are never seen, unless there is a blanket with the knapsack.
Please note the damaged buckle. These straps are 24" long and 11/16" wide
