    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Hello,
    Not sure at all, but VIII could be the number of the Wehrkreis and 2024 an issue number, like 2024th pouch issued within Wehrkreis VIII...
    Thanks

    Hi

    I agree with above post.

    The wehrkreis issued/received equipment had a number on them. I have similar medical equpiment with numbers on them and I reckon they were there for audit purposes and the other tutonic habit of recording and documenting everything !

    cheers
