    This (pdf) suggests that compact slide rules (5-6”) with pouches with clips for belt or pocket we’re not uncommon at any time from the 1930s to the 1970s.

    Nothing so flash in the Antipodes. I suspect that anyone who wandered around with a slidie hanging off their belt would have been dissed as a complete wanker.

    Bit like a student in my clinical school who used wear a tendon hammer dangling from top buttonhole of his ( starched) white coat😂
