The lanyard shown is for 98% one for a shooting association and one can still buy them in this form.
Hallo Wim;
You're probably right with that Fangschnur,however if that's the case Wikipedia and a lot of other websites should take note of this thread and change their info .
See what I mean;
All the best en prettige jaarwisseling.
