Good example of the 1903 pattern leather bandolier, designed for use by mounted troops, identical to Great War manufactured examples though likely dating from the inter-war or WW2 period.

The bandolier featured five pockets each containing 10 rounds, allowing 50 rounds to be carried around the chest.

The condition is generally very good with some light cracking to the top of the pocket lids, however the leather is generally very sound. The brass work is in good shape, as are the rivets.

This example is maker marked 'Leibowitz Bros', a South African company. Unfortunately no date can be seen.
