    Anyone know where in the U.K. or Europe I can get a new strap for my Elgin?

    Can I suggest you go online to a chap who specialises in these bands.
    The website is www.watchdoc.com

    I bought one from him recently and the service was fast and efficient. Shipped to England in a few days. Not cheap but hey what is these days and it’s correct and right for my Bulova.

    www.watchdoc.com/bands.htm

    There are single and two piece bands - the one I purchased was a new old stock www2 military canvass band to fit, as described, Bulova, Hamilton, Waltham and Elgin WW2 watches.

    And they are available in correct colour green ( as per what you are looking for )
