    I almost got my first one. I only made the automatic reply system pay at most 160 euros and the other guy sniped me 1 minute before the end. :(

    I just can't believe how 'collectible' these have become......I bought all of mine between 2010-2011 and easily found them for between 35-55 Euros. But I still think that every Wehrmacht collection should have at least one - like the gasmask canister, they are such a typical piece of equipment.

    6 is an early model gasplane cape (anti yperite). made from rubberised vegetable fibre. Later model bag came in cloth . .It was to remain inseparable from the container and mask . They are famous for their..... stench .

    One more here with plenty of details. The caption says it's Royan, France in 1942.

    These last photos look familiar. This is the way I set up my display for county fairs, outdoor militaria shows, usv.
    I then set up a small wooden table with a WW2 SS typewriter and other items (Lw field radio +) on it and a WW 2 vintage wooden folding chair I got in Germany. Close by I have an MG 42 on an AA tripod.
    Guess some day I should take some photos of this, but never have.

    Just got this original snapshot with some nice 'Zelt' detail. This guy certainly does look like a veteran......

    He looks weary too. He seems to be wearing two bahnen and there is at least another one on the left.
