    Rene, if this list has worked just once to help I.D. an item, it was well worth adding to the forum ! Glad to be of service, sir !
    Prost ! Steve.

    Indeed it is Daniel, post war mess tin, from what West German organisation depends on its colour, for example....Oliv grun, Bundeswehr (Armed forces), Hellgrau, THW (Federal Agency for Technical Relief), Blau, Police....."HSZ" is a known mark from an as yet unknown maker, "80" is the year of manufacture, in this case 1980...........Hope that helps.
    Prost ! Steve.
