    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,

    A lot of war time issue material must have been used after the war. With backpacks, I commonly see the shelves removed from the Fernsprechtornister (telephone pack). I assume this was done to make them more handy for carrying clothes and personal possessions. It certainly took some skill to make this pack and I agree that it is most likely post war. There is a chance it could have been made by a POW. I have seen POW made sacks and small bags made from Zeltbahn material. NH

    Thanks for the feedback - I found it interesting and price was low.
    Will post better photos once I have it.

    It's hard to tell really with this things... If I had item like this, I would choose to believe that it's war made.... In my humble opinion.

    Thanks and here are some more photos.
    All pieces used are period German made - gas mask straps with metal sliders, zeltbahn fabric and shoulder straps.

    UV tested - nothing glows.
