Early Garda Siochana Belt Buckle and Leather Belt. The Garda Siochana was set up after the partition of Ireland when the British forces left the 26 counties of the newly formed Irish Free State. Nice early piece relating to the Irish Free State Police force.
The leather has been over painted in black but the original white leatherette finish is starting to show through. The buckle is interlocking with the centre piece and is inscribed "Garda Siochana na hEirenn". A Scarce piece to come to the market.
