    Hello kradman

    Kss is for Gas defence equipment. In 1942 different letters were added below SA-stamp to tell which category of supply equipment belong. Here is a list from 1942

    T = Taisteluväline (ordnance)
    Int= Talous (clothing, rations)
    L=Lääkintä (Medical)
    E= Eläinlääkintä (Veterinary)
    P= Pioneeri (Engineer)
    V=Viesti (signals)
    Kss=Kaasusuojelu (gas defence)
    K= Kuljetus ( Vehicles, Bicycle, ski)
