    Hello fellow collectors ,

    here I want to show a very special kind of decoration
    of a POW“s mess kit.

    The man left quite a bit of information on this piece of his
    equipment...

    From what he has engraved we can say that he was from Vienna/Austria ,
    that he worked as a bricklayer during his time in Saporoshje from `45 to `47
    and that he saw himself sitting and enjoying wine and viennese folk music...
    after coming home..

    He even left his russian WP number on kit...

    on the top of the mess kit he engraved the shields of vienna and Austria.

    Hope you like it !!

    Best regards

    Bernhard

    Very nice. Seems that he had a short stay in a Russian POW camp.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
