    Cheers, Ade.

    I don't beleive such an item existed. Plus there is simply no age to the item.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thanks

    I can't comment on the originality of the field dressing in this post. In Norway, these fielddressings have been used postwar, for instructional purposes, so a lot of german field dressings have been rediscovered in army depots. I spoke to a collector a couple of years ago. He told me that he had bought a cardboard box, full of field dressings from an army surplus auction, and a small number of them was SS marked. I have never seen them personally, so I am not able to say, if they are similar, to the one in the post.

    All the best

    Hello, I was on the field in Normandy, Alsace during 25 years and never saw such item. Why make such thing, they have the standard field dressing.

    I doubt "für Waffen SS" would be written on it. It also looks very new. Don't know about the font but here is some pics of a vehicle first aid kit. I might have some pics of field dressings somewhere.
