    Default Clothing and equipment labels - who has items with them on?

    In this thread MEYLE77 showed us a tornister he had.
    http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/field-...rkings-231022/
    One of his pictures showed an equipment embroidered label and I was wondering if any of you have items of kit with these labels sewn or glued on?

    I have two items - a late war zeltbahn with an embroidered label for a person who's name I am unsure of ...Syniewski??? and a feldflasche with a printed label to a Schmeidel.

    Ade mentioned in the other thread that they were available for private purchase but I do remember seeing an official document ( cant find it at the moment ) that showed the authorized positions one could sew or glue on these name labels.

    I like the personal association these small items give ..... maybe you have some to share with us all? Just a couple of photos will do - one of the item and one of the label - lets see how many we can come up with!!
    Cheers, Dan

    This website has a good explanation of the issuance of clothing and equipment labels
    http://www.dererstezug.com/clothingequipmentlabels.htm
    and the "official"place to attach them.

    Have a "shufti" round your own collection, there might be a tag you never knew was there?

    Here are two contributions from me.

    The first is a label inside a Heer Panzer Schutzmütze. Named to Obergefreiter Koch, 2 Kompanie / Pz Regt 8.

    I always like to research items and wonder why they might have been. Here is a link to the history of Pz Regt 8:

    Second is a similar common printed clothing label, but glued inside a former RAD members photo album as a souvenir.
