German Items

 

A German flashlight made by Pertrix. Besides the white "normal mode" of illumination, this flashlight also has the ability for either a red and/or a blue lens to cover the bulb. This option is built into the flashlight and uses a sliding mechanism on each side of the lens to select the desired lens color.

The photograph on the right is a picture of the hinged front cover in the open position. Here we can see that this flashlight has a battery installed.  

The photograph on the left is a picture of a  pair of reproduction German WWII era batteries that are used in the flashlight above and the one to the right.

The photograph on the right is another version of a German WWII era flashlight.  

At the top of the photograph on the left is a set of German WWII era razor blades in the original box. The picture under these razor blades and the one to the right show a couple of different sets of cigarette wrapping paper.  

Let us never forget what happened. More text coming soon.  

The picture on the left is of an unopened package of a 1942 dated German bandage.  The Verbandpackchen or First field dressing was issued to each soldier in both small and large sizes. The soldier was given basic instruction on how to properly dress a wound. 

These field dressing were designed specifically to fit in the field dressing pocket situated in the bottom right front panel of the field blouse. The example on the left is the smaller of the two and is roughly 3 inches long by 1 1/2 inches wide by 3/4 of an inch thick. 

The photograph on the right is another unopened field dressing that is wrapped in a protective, waterproofed, gray fabric covering held in place by a fine tied cord. The cover is well marked with black ink-stamped date, 1944, and opening instructions, Faden abstreifen,Pull off cord, as well as a manufacturers name, "Verbandstoff-Fabrik Breca G.m.b.H. Breslau".    

On the left is a Hermann Goring division armband. More text coming soon.

The photograph on the right is of a post WWII German armband. More text coming soon.  

The photograph on the left is of some old German paper money that is dated up to the WWII era.  

The photograph on the left is of a German stove. More text coming soon.

The picture on the left is of some German WWII era pencil's with more text coming soon.

The photograph on the right is a picture of a German WWII era cigarette lighter. More text on this item is planned.  

The item on the left is a fascinating one. In my travels, I have hardly ever come across any of these slides. Notice on the one on the right that the handwriting states, "2nd Exam".  

The photograph on the right is a picture of 5 different WWII era German rifle cleaning kits. One kit has been opened to show the contents. The chain is meant to be pulled through the barrel of a rifle with either a cloth or brush attached.   

The photograph on the right is of a 1937 German Police towel. A more detailed description of two these items is planned.
