    Default NCO's Map Case & Sleeve

    Picked up this NCO's map case at a flea-market on Saturday. You do see them from time to time. This one however unlike most others had a map sleeve in it. The case is stamped - RBN ? /047/6003 and the sleeve is marked J.H.Kofler Bad Homburg 1941. I also found two soft leather cases inside the map case, at first I thought they maybe for glasses but as you see, they are much too long. Would any member know if they have a military connection or not ? or the number next to Obgf. Kramer 10208/A for what could it be? Regards

    Nice case Alec - I think these are underated. Some trainspotters consider them not to be "real" map cases because they don't have the little pocket for the distance tool but I just consider it a later variant design. The sleeve is a good early one as well but I think the long sleeves may be commercially made for rulers ( maybe a slide rule? )

    Thanks Ade,
    It didn't occur to me that it was a Feldpost number. Judging by the dated layout you give and the map case & sleeve dates, the most likely unit it was used with was the last - Jäger Regiment 207. Again thanks for the post.
