Bandolier, 90 rounds (Mark II)

Bandolier, 90 rounds (Mark II), Pattern 1905.

Bandolier, 90 rounds (Mark II), 27 Nov 1905, is an ammunition bandolier developed for British cavalry and mounted infantry. The bandolier has five pockets in front and four in back, each of which holds 10 rounds of .303 British Lee-Enfield Mk.7 ammunition in two 5 round chargers. The bandolier is curved to fit the shoulder, but it lacks the steadying strap. The Mk. II bandolier differs from its predecessor, the Bandolier, 90 rounds (Mark I), in that it has a simple buckle. Similarly, an upgraded Bandolier, 50 rounds (Mark II) was developed for infantry and artillery.
