I am not familiar with the belt but had a bit of a google and checked my books. 

Its not the leather belt used by the Home Guard. [1903 pat] That used a webbing sleeve fitted with two buckles for attaching the webbing braces and a 'conventional' brass buckle.

It looks similar to the pat 1937 webbing belt but in leather. There are four on ebay at the moment. All described as Webley pistol/revolver belts. Strangely all four are in the US. 

So none the wiser really. 

Why would the webley revolver need a specific belt ?

Maybe it has been studied for the infantry but used after to the Home guard?

 

 

The home guard leather belt was of a different design.  I am not sure who used these belts.
