    Default 1936 Unit marked K98k pouch

    A very nice early ammo pouch, very clearly marked “Henseler & Co ULM 1936”. This one is also unit marked, this time to the 2nd Battery of Panzerabwehr Abteilung 15. Again thank you JPhilip for the help. Not too much wear on this one and all unit and maker marks are very clear. I may try to retrieve the news paper in all three pockets but I wouldn’t want to damage it so I may not.

    Happy Collecting,
    Bodhi

    Nice example. You could get the newspaper out with something non-jagged like a popsicle stick if you don't want to risk damaging the paper. However, I would wager the newspaper is post-war. Pretty standard collector technique to fill out ammo pouches. Wehrmacht soldiers carried around newspaper, but typically they needed the ammo pouches for... you guessed it, ammo. At the Front newspaper was carried around in pockets for the call of nature and for rolling cigarettes if proper rolling paper was not available. I've found period newspaper fragments in a couple Feldblusen and in an overcoat pocket.

    I didn’t expect it to be wartime newspaper but I thought if I removed it I’d want to keep it together so I can read it. I’ll probably leave it alone though because I don’t see the point it trying to remove it.
