I just picked up this nice original gasmaskendose. I have a few questions about it.
1. What is the maker 'ago'?
2. What does the 'D' stamped on the bottom on the can indicate?
3. It's named to a 'Gretl', which is obviously a female name. Were these types of cans issued to women?

Hello. The letter D if i recall means that the can is waterproof. Hope i am right..Cant help you on the other questions..sorry.
As for being issued to females, they would have been carried by flak helferin and nurses etc!....
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
The maker ago is E. Luft, Eisen u. Metallwarenfabr., Tetschen a/Elbe and D stamp is waterproof as already stated
And only if the rubber seal in the lid is present ( most are not as they perished and fell out )
