1943-1945 NKVD General's Parade Belt.

On my website about Victory Parade uniforms I explain that the M1943/4 parade belts were used for the June 1945 parade in Moscow as the new gold parade belts were not ready until around the Victory over Japan parade. The 1943/4 parade belts were branch colored;

red stripes- army, including tanks and artillery
magenta stripes-engineering and technical
light blue-air generals

there were rumors of royal blue for NKVD and green for NKVD frontier Troops, but neither had been seen.

Recently one came over; royal blue stripes for NKVD and NKGB generals. I thought people might like to see it, so here is the photo. A friend has said he knows of a green stripe one, but i have yet to see it!
