    Army / Air Force officer full dress belt with dagger hangers, early to mid 1980s.

    Army / Air Force officer full dress belt with dagger hangers, early to mid 1980s.

    Brass hardware and buckle, silk tress. The buckle is Army / Air Force model with the star in a wreath; the suspensions have open frame buckle unlike the lion head buckles of the contemporary Navy officer's dress belt. The liner shows a Soviet factory stamp. In excellent, near mint condition, appears to be unissued. Several in stock; the stamps may differ from the example in our photo but all are of Soviet vintage.

    Changes in uniform regulations in 1958 made daggers virtually obsolete for both Army and Air Force officers. Afterwards, they would carry daggers only on very special occasions such as military oath ceremonies or major parades on Red Square (or in the capital cities of the republics).

    Unlike naval officers, Army and Air Force personnel usually wouldn't keep a dagger in their personal possession, but would instead be issued one to carry just for a day or two when needed. (Officers with assignments that required the frequent wear of dress uniforms most likely would have kept a belt with hangers like this in their possession.)
