Add a memory or information about this object
- The Swedish one might be a very rare British issue (but Ocham says not)- I've heard of a two examples with British 'broad-arrow' markings.
The other bandier is almost certainly not British either, certainly not 1901 pattern (the 1st to have pouches for ammunition in chargers) - all British belts have the male end on the right, and none had attachments on the inner surfaces.

- Barry is correct. The bandoleer on the right is for the Swedish mauser.

- Dear Sir/Madam,
I think the bandolier on the right is Swedish.
