    Very attractive DD Heer Tranny, with tons a character Andy.
    From what I can see, it has had a well varied and interesting military career.
    In the front and rear shots, when you click to enlarge, there appears to be the
    telltale spots of weld that once held a comb in place.
    Which would indicate service in the Czech Army as a vz20.
    Congrats on picking up such a wonderful piece of history!!

    Brad you are spot on I think, A member over at GHW has said exactly the same thing about the 'vz.20'.

    It was the first time I had heard of such a lid. So it has it's WW1 service, interwar service with the Czechs, then acquired and reissued to the German Heer in the mid Thirties as the Wehrmacht grew and evolved! If only it could talk
