    The hand held cable reel with attached Kurbel (handle) was used mostly for radio antenna guy wire construction. I believe they were used by Pioneer troops as well. Picture attached shows a group of these labeled AntennaGerät from a period manual. NH

    And here I though it was for explosives... memories of old WWII movies growing up ;-)

    You can't rule out the possibility that this was used with Pioneer troops. It may have been used to lay out detonation wire. One of our Pioneer experts should weigh in here. I only know field phone/radio. NH
