Default Unknown strap "Oben"

Hello,


Fresh fleamarket find - a long web strap - undoubtly german WW2 issue. Any idea what is it for? Probably to carry something. Ammo? Dated 1939.

I have several of these - all from one place.





And here another one, same size, seems to be improved later version used for the same purpose - this time with red marking "OBEN" (UP) and dated 1941.

Thoe straps are meant to lift LW bombs out of their shipping crates

Yes, we can be 100% sure about it now. I got two versions of these - with steel belt buckle - and without buckle - please see Die deutsche Wochenschau 521 - 06:00 - 06:17
