Original World War I Vickers Machine Gun belts with early brass long dividers every third round, which indicated how far to insert the cartridge in the belt. Each belt has a brass leader at each end, allowing the belt to be inserted from either end. The leaders are marked with the belt capacity (250 rounds), caliber (.303), the Ordnance Broad Arrow, manufacturer's initials and dated 1916, 1917 or 1918.
