RISING SUN BELT BUCKLE
« on: April 10, 2018, 13:37 »
Came across this today.  A Rising Sun belt buckle with a star on it, and quite heavy.  Not sure if it is made from copper or brass.  Could not find it on Google, but was told it is from the Whitlam era. The closest I could find was a buckle with a star, that had a crown in the middle.  Cannot get any other pics up at the moment.

Someone told you a good story! That is a buckle for a leather belt available from a disposal store, it was never an issued item. The 'staple belt' came with a regimental crest, the polly belt was black enameled brass or satin stainless and we would polish them to a mirror finish, the black web 'parade' belt had the standard M/F brass buckle. Also the yellow star on red background which is the Vietnamese flag looks noting like the star on the rising sun buckle you found......
