Stretcher carry straps

Recommended Posts

Dave1418

Hi

Can anyone please provide me with the dimensions particularly length of the main 2” section and the length of the 1” handle strap.

I’d also welcome any information on the  the early leather carry straps ( dimensions or images) which were replaced by webbing version. 

Many thanks

Hi 

I believe these are the elusive items I was trying to get the information on. They are marked HGR Ld 1914 they’re around 40” long and 1and 3/4 wide with steel roller buckles

Thanks for the images; I have a stretcher and it's good to see the kit that should accompany it. 

 I believe it's made by Hepburn Gale & Ross Ltd.

Hi

yes HGR Ld is Hepburn Gale & Ross from 1901 to 1920 prior to that it was Hepburn & Gale manufacturers of quality leather goods.

Now I have a definitive pattern to work from I’ll have to make a set but will undoubtedly struggle to find the correct steel roller buckles

regards

Dave
