From the Faussett diary: \here were also 2 small brass Buckles (see Fig: 3 4) that which is described at Fig: 3 [M 6264] has some leather still remaining under the Rivet on the Under side - the other has some Cloth sticking to the upper side of it [M 6265].\""Bronze buckle and plate, apparently cast in one piece. Apparently also with cloth adhering to one surface. Length 1 3/4 inch, D-shaped loop, simple tongue, long tapering plate, with some sort of edge decoration and 2 rivets - possibly broken at end. Plate 5/8 inch broad.
