    Luftwaffe survival machete

    Recommended Posts

    Here's a nice piece of survival gear carried by aircrew in tropical regions. Not too often seen. I can't post very detailed photos due to the "probationary period" restrictions on my account. Maybe later.

    The machete was used by flight crews in the frozen tundra too. At least that was the gist of the "Signal" magazine article showing the use of one of them. The "Signal" photo was published in Tom Johnson's volume III or IV if I remember correctly. Some of them were LW accepted and some had only commercial markings. The canvas frog as shown on yours was pictured another of Johnson's volumes. I have seen a leather frog too.
