History:
The belt is standard piece of equipment for military personnel, for use in the field and for ceremonial purposes. During World War 2 the standard German belt was made out of leather, the EM (Enlisted Man) belt was designed to carry the soldiers equipment. The early war buckles made by F.R.O. (Franz Reischauer Oberstein) were made from aluminium, but by mid war the material was changed to steel and they were made by different manufactures, the die design was simplified, the back clasp faster was altered and leather tabs were removed. Gott mit uns (God with us) was a phrase commonly used on armour in the German military from the German Empire to the end of the Third Reich.
