    Default Unknown German Jerrycan manufacturer

    Hi everyone,

    That is my first thread in this forum. Please excuse for any mistakes.

    I need help to identify an unknown German Jerrycan manufacturer.

    I pictured the one I house in my collection. I read Ehg but maybe some forum member can identify the logo. Most manufacturers produced lots of different equipment during war years, so maybe this one is known.

    Stamped on this can is: Kraftstoff 20L, Feuergefährlich, 1943, Ehg (logo), 6, Wehrmacht.

    Any help is highly appreciated.

    Kindest regards

    Philip

    Hi, its EhB not Ehg. I don't know anything about the maker but this is a little help.
    ( 6 is the lot number )
    Cheers, Dan

    Unfortunately, the manufacturer behind the "EhB" logo is still unknown. A few links of interest:

    Hi Dan,

    Thank you very much for your fast answer. Yes, several sources say EhB, but why not Ehg? Is EhB proven?
    Cheers,

    This site says EhB too and the logo could go each way but I think the stylized logo leans toward EhB myself.
