    Can anybody identify this 1942 Canadian Parachute/Aircraft Belt?

    Hi Guys,

    I picked this strap up at a show today and was wondering if anybody knows what it was used for. It is marked "MADE BY - SWITLIK - PARACHUTE COMPANY - TRENTON, NJ - MAR. 1942" and has what looks like a Canadian acceptance arrow. It looks like it might be half of an aircraft seat belt or something...
