militaria item Glasgow Yeomanry officer's waist belt clasp
- Scottish
The Glasgow Yeomanry was one of the oldest Scottish yeomanry units, troops originally being raised in the Glasgow area from 1797. This example may date from as early as 1848 and would have been unchanged until 1902, when the king's crown replaced the queen's.

militaria item Fife & Forfar Yeomanry officer's waist belt clasp
- Scottish
This belt buckle would have been worn by an officer with the dress uniform up to WW1. To my knowledge, it is the only belt buckle which displays a mounted figure, with the exception of the St Martin's Volunteers of the Westminster Rifles from a slightly earlier era (the 1860s).

- German
This design, a Prussian one, started in 1848 as a 50mm wide box buckle, later reduced (in 1895) to a 45mm wide one and was replaced in 1915 by a pressed steel example with a field grey finish. It was worn by all arms except cavalry, who wore a plain open frame buckle.

This is the standard other ranks buckle worn throughout WW1 on a brown or black belt by all arms except cavalry. It is in die-struck brass; later in WW1 a die-struck steel example was produced and these are considerably scarcer than the brass examples.

militaria item Oldenburg or Baden officer's dress belt and buckle
- German
This 'feldbindung' or officer's dress belt was introduced in 1896 to replace the schaerpen (a sort of bullion cummerbund with large tassels) throughout the German army. Baden and Oldenburg shared both the design of the buckle (with the Imperial crown replacing the royal one) and the braid of the belt (with its characteristic thin red stripe).
