BELGIAN BANDOLIERS

 


FAL Ammunition Bandolier (7.62 X 51 mm)
There has been a lot of discussion about this bandoleer as I had it previously labeled as being Dutch as it was found in an typical Dutch ammunition can and was filled with
Dutch stripper clips (H) loaded with German 'DAG' marked ball ammunition dated 1969.

After talking with a couple of Collectors in the Netherlands the consensus is the bandoliers were sourced from somewhere else and in fact the entire contents of the ammunition can were probably put together by a third party for an order to Tanzania (shipping address on the can).

I have however managed to find pics in a photocopy of the Belgium Army manual for the FAL rifle in which is shows a 50 round, 5 pocket bandolier which matches the design of this bandoleer.
