Question about Afrika Korps Rucksack
I have a question for you... Afrika Korps rucksacks don't have shoulder straps because they were fixed to Y straps....but is it possible that some of these rucksacks had shoulder straps permanently fixed to the ring?I ask this because I have seen in Web some examples of these rucksacks with leather shoulder straps...but fixed not permanently.... at most in a way of quick release...and never permanently to the central ring.
A friend of mine say it's possible but honestly in my books I haven't find this ....someone can help me?
Thank you for your helpfullness.....

Because of time differences around the world, the people that might be able to help you would not necessarily be on the forum for you. Be patient, it may be a few days before you get your answer but it will come.
There is a lot of knowledge here..... but 28 posts in 2 years?.. you aren't the most regular yourself.

First ) there was no resentment or impatience in me when I sayd ''nobody can help me''.....iIt was only because the topic it's interesting to me because I know only that there are time zones.
Second)about your statement of ''my 28 posts'' I can say that what unfortunately happened to me ''personally''.... over the last two years and the problems I had ... I have certainly not explain it to you!!
Third) If you want to give me little lesson of ''education''..read ALSO ( and not only count) my 28 posts....I have always speaked with cuteness and kindness ( it's my way..) with everybody.
I'm searching some gentle and expert person that can teach me something about Rucksacks (because I do not pretend to know everything) and not
What type of Rucksack are you talking about please ?
Because there's no Afrikakorps Rucksack labelled as such...

Perhaps you should post photos of your rucksak Before you jump on someone for anything! Asking a question without showing what you're talking about is rather ???
Thank you for your answer first of all.There isn't a photo.Me and this friend of mine were talking about DAK Rucksacks and he told that there were versions with leather shoulder straps fixed permanently at the central ring, like parts of Y-straps adapted...I knew that these Rucsacks were made to be set with A frame or Y-straps and occasionally there were shoulder straps but not leather than web and free removable....so I searched on my books and I didn't find what my friend say.
In internet instead there are some photos...but...are they original?Post war replacement?Adaptions to a ''civil'' use?...this is my question...Thank you again for your helpfullness.
I didn't jump on anyone...I only asked a question....the polemic I have not started I......ok?
Watch your Tone sorecat , 2016 seem to be the year of Bitching on WRF . Members with thousands of helpful posts get ridiculed by rarely seen or heard of members , who think their Shit don't stink . So wait for replies and shut up about it , or find a new site where bad behaviour is more encouraged .
I'm moderate...you aren't...and your Language says it all.........I have never used a dirty word unlike you...if You think of to scare you so ...I'm really trembling.....who are you to suggest me to find another site?If ''you'' feel ridiculed....your problem...
I ask the moderator to intervene because I have not done anything wrong and some ''gentleman'' decided to put fuel on the fire by raising the tone.
