Wouldn't a machine gunner were a pistol belt?
I would guess either a pistol belt or a rifle belt depending on if he also had a rifle to use or an assitant gunner??

In my experience in the military there is the regulation way and the way it was done in the field and in combat. Now is he a typical example of machine gunner, or an atypical example?
I know he was atypical in at least one way. In addition to his issued M1911, he also "found" a M1917 revolver with holster and he added that to his belt wearing it on the left. He said the butt of the revolver was to the rear on that holster when on the left side.
He was a two gun gunner from Iowa!
