    Not the most stunning carving, motto is the same as on RAD Hewer, still looks to be a period piece

    Rough translation: 'Work Produces Virtue' which is the motto of the German
    'R.A.D.' - the Reich Arbeits Dienst (National Labour Service)

    I would think it is more of a commemorative piece or made as a gift, etc. by
    someone with some woodcarving skill. It is not an 'official' piece, although
    by it's nature is of the TR period - the shape of the shovel is an indicator,
    as R.A.D. spades are shaped exactly like this.
    Regards,


    Steve.
