  • Looks to me like something from Malaysia. The central colours are the colours of the Malay States, I would guess the Royal Malay Regiment?
  • Looks like the old Small Arms Corps belt to me.
  • Rhodesian belt of some type
  • Definitely NOT Rhodesian
  • I believe that this is the stable belt of the Royal Brunei Armed Forces. The central colours are that of the flag of the said country and the green is the same as their dress uniform. A lot of Brits go over on loan service or are recruited on retirement to assist in developing this small force. You will note that the Sultan of Brunei has two battalions of Gurkhas (the majority, if not all, are former serving soldiers in the British Army) as his personal bodyguard, above the nation's armed forces.
  • If it helps, the design of the belt allows the metal tightener to be worn at the front. The colours are right, but in the wrong order for the Brunei Army.
  • This belt is 99.9% (according to me) the stable belt of the Sultan of Brunei's reserve unit. Made up entirely of ex-Gurkhas. Why the red is at the top, unlike the flag - I don't know, but it also appears that way on several medals for the same forces. It could be that the red represents something else, ie - the Gurkha Rifles colours, rather than the Brunei Army colours and is specifically misaligned for that reason.
  • The green and yellow suggest a light cavalry, maybe a Yeomanry regiment
  • The colours of the mystery Stable Belt certainly are the colours of the Royal Brunei Malay Regiment
