    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    As a matter of fact, I think I can help- the oval access plate is the exact same as one I have that came to me with a bit of medical tape stuck to it, obviously quite old, with the words 'Part from a Stuka bomber' written on it in ink; and I've seen a photo of the underside, forward edge of a Ju87B wing that appears to have this kind of plate (with the locking screw forward of centre). So it would seem you have a Stuka part there. The label plate, I don't know about- it could also be from a Stuka if the parts are 'together'...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    The first one I think is not belonged to the aircraft. Fahrzeug IMO is a vehicle. But similar part as below, I've found once too, Probably that kind of closures was universal for different models of aircrafts

    Yes, I agree, Fahrzeug means vehicle. If it would have been for an airplane, it would say Flugzeug. Danny

    Indeed the majority of access plates were ovoid- it's the size, rivet pattern and locking screw position that helps identify them. When I searched, I wasn't able to find any others that had the screw offset, save on the Stuka- usually, like the one lebus showed, they're centred.
