This Real Photo Postcard (RPPC) features a group of Army cooks near a mess tent.
Two of the soldiers are wearing "Hate Belts"-- leather belts with attached buttons and collar disc collected from allied as well as enemy soldiers.
The actual souvenir belts used to be readily available, but in recent years they have become much harder to find (like MANY military antiques and collectibles)!
