Just got this Panzerschreck shield in from a Latvian digger. In relic condition but still solid, it is only missing the top glass hinged cover ( I guess the bottom cover was for a spare? ) and the latch is broken off ..... but for a piece of tin to have survived this well, I'm chuffed to own one. You don't see a lot and guess there is even less here in the southern hemisphere?
Question is - does anyone know what the loops were for?
I haven't seen a photo where they are in use.
