    Default Field Gear Pick-Ups Today!

    Hello Friends,
    I've been picking up Field-Gear again lately as I've been contemplating adding a Mannequin to my display...I managed to score a scarce late-war Medical Canteen w/cup and straps...has PRYM Snaps too...along with 2 Breadbags in decent shape and a Canvas Field-Phone Cover that's really rough, but I was more interested in the BreadBags anyway, so that's just a bonus to me, lol...I paid $50 for the 2 BreadBags & Fieldphone Cover and $35 for the canteen, which includes shipping from Germany, so I'm definitely pleased with the prices...The best place for German Fieldgear is German Ebay.de, friends...it's worth a look, especially for my fellow US collectors as the US$ exchange-rate is favorable vs the Euro....
    cheers, Glenn

    Nice Glenn.

    So you figured out what type of canteen it was?

    Yes, I found another just like it along with a description of the features found on the late-war version...I knew it was a good one, but I wasn't sure if it was Mountain Troop or Medical...
    cheers,Glenn

    Good job. I looked thru a few books and couldn't find it.

    Notice that they've completely gotten rid of the leather harness and that there is no metal tab on the bottom of the cover, only a leather strip...
    and the chain being another indicator...

    cheers, Glenn

    Thanks Jonathan, I'm on a very tight budget...This hobby has taught me to be patient and to buy as wisely as I can with what little extra money I have...
    cheers, Glenn

    German ebay is great if you can read german!
    Gets tiring plugging every word into a translator.

    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,
