Default Unknown Y straps-Help identify please

Anyone have any idea what armed forces used this type of Y strap? There no markings on it that I can find. Metal parts are steel.

Regards,

Gordon

Simular straps were used by NSDAP formations.

Welcome
Of course the D-rings do not belong there, but interesting way to keep them with the Y-straps

Gran Sasso,

I put pictures of these straps on the Political forum and here is the answer that I received.

"Not the standard SA suspenders. The regulation examples have prong-less slide buckles like a regular cross-strap. In very early photos you sometimes see a pronged buckle with different leather strap set up worn as a cross-belt by SA men, but by the time the regulations were set up and RZM examples produced, the standard cross-strap buckle was used.
Also, the belt loop fittings used by the SA (as well as by most, if not all NS organizations) were "D" shaped and not elongated as these appear."

Regards,

Gordon
