World War One battlefield Luger holsters 1915 and 1916
It has been a while since I posted.
Further to my sharing of the 100 R Saxon buckles and bayonet, I have found 2 WW1 Luger holsters .
Attachment 864816 Attachment 864817 Attachment 864818 Attachment 864819 Attachment 864820 Attachment 864821
The first holster has a manufacturer name but I cannot read it and a 1915 date under the flap as well as a number FAR.58 in black ink. Looks like a Luger artillery holster .
The second holster has a Hans Römer Neu-Ulm 1916 inscription under the flap and a crown with an I on the back.
Any comments and further information welcome.
The second is more likely dated 1918 as the Crown/I indicates that the hide was accepted within the Bavarian First Army Corps district. After WWI it was converted to a Weimar police holster.
