Forum member sgtmonroe sent me these two pics from the LIFE Magazine archives showing the use of the Lightweight Rucksack waist belt used as an Individual Equipment Belt.

Hi Craig and folks,
in addition to this excellent post, this is my P64 belt, bought recently. The particularity of this belt is without any doubt the markings who differed from your own one. Maybe a variant from another manufacturer? f you could help me to answer the question...

I have no idea who FDK is. Most of those buckles I have seen were marked Davis. There are some marked with a windmill logo that I think are Hollander, The repros I have seen from Asia are unmarked. Hopefully sgtmonroe will see this and knows the answer.
