    Default Straight entrenching tool covers

    Hi

    Also posted this on the WAF but not much response.....

    I'm working on the article on straight shovels for my web site and I have a question:

    Do any of you have a carrier made of Ersatzleder produced BEFORE 1942 ??
    Or a leather carrier later then 1937/38 ?

    There seems to be a gap in carriers between these dates, or is it that in this timeframe more Folding shovels were produced ??

    According to the Heeres Verordnungsblätter the artificial leather was introduced (and tested) in 1938 - 1940 but I never saw a carrier before 1942

    The earliest I've seen is the eue/42 carriers

    Anyone who can help me out here ??

    Cheers

    Hi Tom, all I can contribute ( and I can't assist with the actual question ) are my two spaten, one straight & one folding. They had ( a little ) discussion here.

    But I don't thing we have a lot of equipment guys on the WRF.
    I don't know whether this helps at all - sorry.
    Cheers, Dan
