    Hi,

    Does anyone know what UW stands for?

    Is it a kind of RZM mark? I suppose the W stands for Wehrmacht?

    Found this code in a picture of a strap: UW-0-0452

    Thanks,
    Ken

    Hi Ken, can you show the pic please? I have severe doubts this is wartime.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ken, it´s necesarry to see an image of this mark !

    For example, there´s the mark U.E. 10RZM, (UE means Uniform-Effekten), marked upon the hanger of the Luft Zwo, "Luxusausführung".

    Hi,

    I found them when searching eBay. It's on this helmet carrier. The guy is selling them as originals found in Russia.

    So, any ideas what it stands for? It looks like an army code. The carrier was manufactured in Magdeburg by Lothar Gerecke.

    Not an original item in my opinion.

    They're bogus? They do look suspicious in a way, but is the code a fantasy mark?

    P.S. The guy sells a whole bunch of them. He says he got them from Russia 5 or 6 years ago. They were in this lot among other items he says. Some dated 1939, some 1940. He adds that they were treated with beewax from storage. Clips are magnetic according to him, the stainless steel hook ain't.

    So you would advise to stay away from it?

    Cheers

    These were never an issue item. They were improvised at best. I would not buy one.

    Cheers, Ade.
