    Default Bit of field kit, Ruck sack, Y straps LW Valice

    Some bits from yesterday,

    The Luftwaffe clothing valice is nice being issued with unit markings in the top flap, I only have a couple of these they are quite unusual.

    It is in very good nick and all the zips etc work and are intact.

    The Y-strap was with the rucksack and and has Rb Nr and dated 1944 (see photo).

    The rucksack late war with hooks to fit on Y-strap (one missing and was attached with wire). Rb Nr on the webb at back (see photo).

    Regards

    Jock

    Hi Jock, these are all great finds.

    I like the stamps to the Luftwaffe bag. Nice to research.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Jock, I don't sorry, but I will have a go at looking up the units.

    The stamps are a bit blurred. KG2??? Can you type out the wording into this thread please?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade.

    I will type them as they appear with ? for figures/letters which I can't make out.

    5.St./KG252 the last two might not be?

    Fl. H. Kdtr. Liegn?

    K. Gr. 11?/153

    St.11

    Cheers

    Hi Jock, thanks. What with the blurred out markings this is going to be very hit and miss, but here we go, some of them are pre war:

    5th Staffle/Kampfgeschwader 252

    Kampfgeschwader 252

    Fliegerhorst-Kommandantur is an airfield defence unit. The last word we cannot make out will be the place name.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade,

    I was under the impression these were for flying personnel so they could move there uniform around easily? Pre war no problem but unit marks during the war must have been an oversight on security? I also thought they were private purchase items but the leather is also marked and it looks to be issue?

    The big zip is Rapid and the two smaller Ri-Ri, with the pess studs 'Stocko'.

    Thanks

    Jock

    Hi Jock, no they kept marking stuff up during the very early war years.

    It is an issue bag. The hardware is from the usual well known makers.

    Cheers, Ade.
