    Default My small DRK collection

    Having some time off this year from Helmets and field gear ( running out of room if truth be told ) so have been collecting some lesser sought items. Not for future resale but just because they struck my fancy and were kind of neat.

    So here is a group of Deutsches Rotes Kreuz items for your viewing pleasure.

    Of interest ( at least to me ) is that the Frostbite salve is dated April 1941 ( just before the Winter Barbarossa offensive ) and the Burns Salve is August 1942 ( just before the Stalingrad battle )

    For me these dates REALLY cement these small insignificant item's place in history!!

    Nice assortment Dan! I hear you about room...and I'm guilty of hoarding doubles triples ect of items. My new process is to eliminate doubles ect to a certain extent to acquire new examples I do not have. I have a few Red Cross items I will share with you. Thanks for sharing.
