    I don't necessarily see it as a paratrooper one - just a period map case. Hard to pin these down to being military also as they were sold generally for hikers / general map containers etc....

    A nice looking item however and good to see the strap with it ( issue ones usually went on the belt via loops )

    i see no marking to identify this as a map case used by paratroopers it looks period but could be issued between the 1920s and 1950s but i would doubt their is any conection to a paratrooper !

    It looks similar to Russian or Polish cases.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    not a match for any WWII German examples I have ever seen. similar to Italian versions, but not the same, though it has been a while since I have seen an Italian version.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I agree with the others, no real connection to paratroopers here I think, just looks like a typical map case to me. To be honest I am not sure if its german even but I am not an expert on map cases at all. Looks like a decent case though
