The German WWII Belt Buckle was a basic addition to the Soldier or Officer’s uniform. There were well over 100 different types and designs of belt buckles issued in WW2 and even non-military belt buckles were made with a Swas. Just about every organization of the military developed its own uniform, including their own distinct belt and belt buckle. Buckles could be smooth or pebbled, in a variety of colors depending on the organization that issued it in a variety of designs. The Germans used intricate designs for their belt buckles and they were always high quality.
Though Military belts and buckles have been around for centuries, in 1847 the buckle as we know it now with the quick release catch was introduced. During WW2 the belt and buckle were worn with the buckle being positioned on the right side and the buckle catch on the left side.
