    Hi Tom, welcome to the forum!

    Robert is correct. The stamp is bogus. The name labels were private purchase items which you could get printed up to use in your kit. Some contained unit details, like Company and Regt etc. These continued to be made during the West German, post war era.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Tom, it is the owners name. It reads "Koplin, Johs."

    Johs will be short for Johanes, his christian name.

    Cheers, Ade.
