Help needed! The story and face behind an Afrika Korps belt

A DAK (Deutsche Afrika Korps) belt in excellent condition, considering its age and use, is a riddle for WW2 enthusiasts.

To whom did it belong? 

Was it war booty, removed from a killed soldier, or just an item an allied soldier took from a prisoner of war, as a reminder of his days fighting for freedom against the nazi regime?

According to the markings, some DAK historians managed to identify the markings as Field Post Number 43734 - (1.10.1940-27.2.1941) 4. kleine Kraftwagen - Kolonne
Panzer - Divisions - Kolonne19 (8.9.1942 - 11.3.1943) gestrichen (8.9.1943-22.4.1944) 14.12.1943 Stab u. 1.-4. Kompanie Feldersatz-Bataillon Feldherrnhalle.

Now the big question: To whom this belt was issued to? Anyone with information and guidance is welcome to assist in the identification!
