First: Please note that the following two photos have been shamelessly filched from the
I-net. I regretfully must do this because once again I find a dead camera battery at
the moment of need.

Moving right along... I had been seeking and recently acquired an identical cartridge
belt. The problem is now that I have it I can't quite identify exactly what it is.
I probably haven't used the right combination of string identifiers for Google to return
relevant data. I once saw an Ebay auction that described this as a gun(naval artillery)
primer cartridge bandoleer; yet, there was another that described it as a cartridge belt
for the obsolete, but still in service Lee-Remington rifles that many ships still had
aboard.

Although the belt utilizes the early style C-Clamp and keepers, the naval eagle snaps
have a patent date of 1907. No Mills patent dates are on the buckles, only the phrase
"Made under Mills patents." The belt has a Mills stamp, so I'm placing this between
1907 and 1917.

What say ye? What is it?

I'm giving this topic a poke because I'd be interested in the answer (and this thread is nearly useless without one).

Were there any provisions to afix the bayonet scabbard with the belts's flap?

Acording to Steven Dorseys book, American Military Belts and Related Equipment, Pioneer Press Union City, Tennessee, 1984, page 118, belt is circa 1907 Navy cartridge belt for 30.40 Kraig. Check it out.6D5E6513-8DFB-4A9E-BDDA-A47E00CCCC11.jpeg
