    As stated so eloquently by our fellow members, this is a civilian suitcase with the owner's initials, not SS or military-related in any way...

    To be honest, assuming that this has anything to do with the Schutzstaffel is a bit like assuming that a door marked "WC" has to come from Winston Churchill's house.
    I am suprised you didn't mention an anecdotal quote related to this from the great man himself Andreas, but that may be because you are more of a gentleman than I.

    During the wartime coalition, Churchill had to offer jobs to some of his political opponents, and quietly 'sidelined' many of them by giving them fairly pointless jobs. One of these jobs was the Lord Privy Seal, whose responsibilities involved supervising state papers.

    One day the Lord Privy Seal sent an aide to get Churchill's signature, and the young man tracked down the Prime Minister by detecting clouds of cigar smoke billowing from under the door of one of the cubicles in the House of Commons lavatory. "Prime Minister", the aide said, "the Lord Privy Seal requires your signature on an important document".

    Annoyed at being bothered by a man he particularly disliked, he replied:

    "Tell the Lord Privy Seal that I am sealed in my privy". (NB: for non-British readers, the word 'privy' is an old-fashioned term for a toilet.) There was a pause, and he added, "And I can only deal with one sh!t at a time"....

    Brilliant.

    Regards, Ned.

    A pre-1934 SA suitcase with Rohm erased luggage label and tiger grip handle is much rarer than these common SS fire place pieces!! Leon.

    Hi Pete,

    Funnily enough, the Lord Privy Seal that Churchill was referring to was Sir Stafford Cripps a senior Labour Party politician with extremely strong views on most things, especially Marxism, which he greatly admired and workers rights along those lines. He also held the British black propaganda agenda against Germany in disdain once telling Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden, "If this is the sort of thing that is needed to win the war, why, I'd rather lose it." Consequently Churchill was not a fan.

    His severe nature once caused a BBC radio announcer to refer to him as "Sir Stifford Crapps" during a live broadcast by mistake.
