    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    I'm no expert on these at all- but it would look good paired with a case like mine. Nice score
    There is someone that is sharp on these markings here but I can't remember who! sorry

    I am not an expert but this is - I believe - a 18pr shrapnel shell MkXII ( 'shorter' 221mm shell ) made from forged steel. The date is ath the bottom but I can't make it out, and I don't know what 'D A and Z' mean.
