Full dress shoulder belt, which was worn by Robert McKeeman Oakley, an officer in the Victorian Artillery Garrison, from 1892-1901, and in the Australian Garrison Artillery from 1901. There are no identifying maker's marks.
The shoulder belt was worn diagonally across the body. It would have attached to either the full dress shoulder belt with pouch, or the officer's sword belt. It would have been worn over the Officer's Full Dress Tunic.
This leather shoulder belt is covered with gold ribbon. It has two oval, gilded buckles depicting a lion standing on a crown-the badge of staff officers-at either end of the belt.
