    Hi Inka,

    It's the frame part of what looks like a Gerbirgsjager pack saddle. These were often used to carry heavy equipment such as mountain guns, heavy machine guns, radios, ammunition, medical supplies etc., etc. Here's a similar example that give you an idea of what they looked like. They are many and varied and are a hobby on their own in my opinion!!
