Lads
This is the real last of my nightmares. I have tried just about everywhere and keep my fingers crossed that one turns up in my size on nasty Mr E Bay! Iam chasing a stable belt for the 9/12th Lancers size 38 Rolling Eyes
If anyone can help or point me in the right direction I would be most appreciative!
Cheers
Troy

G'day Sir and good morning to you!
Yes I tried there, that is where I found out the 9/12th used the Fox...the curator there is a real nice chap.
I seem to turn a blank everywhere else I have gone..I have all the kit including the V neck Lovat green wooley pulley but can't get hold of that pesky belt LOL.
My first name is Troy, if you like, I used to handle K9's (dogs) that is where that comes from.
Thank you for the reply
Cheers

The REME stable belt was one of the few which could be put to immediate use in the 60s/70s as a handy bottle top opener. Suspect this may have been forgotten now in the current era of push top tinnies

It even had instructions on the belt. 'Arte et Marte' is latin for 'Twist to Open'

Another scam, practised in the Gunners, was the "Battery Scarf". This was a cravat produced in the "Bty Colours" worn on Exercise with Combat Kit and in Barracks when wearing Coveralls. They were normally run up by the BSM/BQMSs' wife who took a percentage of the takings for their input. Suspect
