    These are Luftwaffe cargo-tags attached to identify various items...Food, Ammo, Fuel, Medical etc...Someone started the ridiculous rumor a few years ago that these were tags for men being flown out of Stalingrad...Not True.

    The rumor.....For me it's for clothes in barracks, because we found such items on airfield like Chartres, Evreux. So, of course you can find them in Stalingrad, on the airfields.
    You can find these in white, yellow, red.
