About this deal

In recent times perhaps but in a WW1 front line situation I suspect they were used to anchor all sorts of things.

And since no such evidence exists, your storys falls flat on their face. One might even ask why other arms and corps wear lanyards? There is a difference between lanyards used for ceremonial purposes and working, the lanyards I see in pictures of WW1 in the trenches are working lanyards and in many instances consist of nothing more than a length of string with the knife or whistle attached, they certainly aren't Regiment, Bn or Corps identifiers (with the exception of perhaps RA) .
