Hi,
Its a garter rather than a belt. A heraldic symbol.
BSA manufactured Martini Henry rifles under licence.So it is probably those that the rifles represent.
Cheers,

Hi tombeau
could well be a garter as they crop up a lot on Brit trade marks an such, however I wonder how many garters had buckles and metal loops on them.
There again I'm no expert on the wearing or use of garters  *lol*
Do like your phots of the piled arms though these are the ones I prefer
