  Sam Browne Belt. A full history and a controversy
Sam Browne belts are a combination of a pistol belt or garrison belt and a shoulder strap (and D-rings).
The belt plate, 2-1/2" square, is of silvered brass, slightly convex in form, and has on its face a spread eagle with shield on breast, surmounted by a scroll with the motto, "E. Pluribus Unum".
Browne led the 2nd Punjab in several engagements, and was decorated for action during the Bozdar Expedition in 1857, being promoted to captain.

Sam Browne belts consist of a shoulder sash combined with a waist belt.
When the non-reflective waist belt was replaced by a Sayre waist belt, it was an effective aid to conspicuity and did not interfere with access to rear jersey pockets.
Sam Browne belts were more compact to store, provided equivalent or superior visibility, and hindered access to rear jersey pockets less compared to the vest and tabards tested.
