I am looking for measurements for two Dutch items:

Equipment Belt: What is the width of the main equipment belt?

Identification tag: What are the dimensions (height x width) of the soldiers' identification tag?

Thank you for your help. I am trying to get some items custom made using photographs, but photos don't give dimensions.

OK, here you go. (from my personal collection)
You will have to convert (its in Milimeters).

For privicy I covered the name.
It looks like a zinc plate. 1 MM thick.
Note the splice on the cord, I think its the original one.
Its 60 CM long.

Cool! Thank you so much for this information. We're working on figuring out if we can reproduce these for our group, and so far we lack an original to copy.

Glad I could help.
Guess you guys will figure out how to best reproduce them.

Well, they seem very similar in material and construction (other than shape) to the German ID tags. If I can find somebody who makes the German ones who would be willing to make a handful of the Dutch ones, we'd be in business. Unfortunately, of the people that I've asked so far, they all want orders in the hundreds of units. I'd be lucky if I could unload 20.
