The “Tragevorrichtung” Leather helmet carrier is quite a rare item. I can find no record of them ever being issued so maybe a private purchase item. If so then this would explain why I can find no markings.
They were favoured by Cavalry units as part of their tack, but I have seen photos of Infantry units and the Waffen SS using them too. Mmmmmm the mind boggles!
I am confident this is pre 1945 for sure due to the ageing of the metalwork, leather etc. The stitching is professionally done, maybe by one of the units saddle makers?
The overall length of the leather band with the buckle undone is 73 cm
