    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Very nice! Though 'B Ltd' was a British firm, the Canadian Army would have used them during the war.

    Thanks - any idea why Shell Dressings was covered up and NCO was stamped on top of it ?

    I'm not sure when these shell dressing bags were repurposed for NCOs, but a lot of them have the 'shell dressing' part blacked out on the collector's market.

    Thanks !
    I know they were reissued to Civil Defence - could that be the reason ?
