BELOW - This example has a wider central stripe and also the belt is approximately
7.5 cms wide compared to 6.3cms for the belt in the top image

BELOW - Comparison of the differing widths of the central stripes

The wider one is the original stable belt and was replaced by the narrower one when the Battalion
had to replenish their stocks. It was decided to produce a slimmer version due to the older style
having a tendency to fold over and crease.
