Unusual Volksmask Container

Recommended Posts

Kyles bullets,

If you see another and it is cheap and chearful you should take it. German ebay is a very good source of stuff.

I don't doubt there are plenty out there and I must have walked past 100s of them over my 26 years in Germany but you have to know they exist to collect them I suppose. If you don't notice the Luftshutz property mark then it is just a black thing amongst the junk.

I already have one of these luftschutz ones in the small blue canister you mentioned earlier. Mask is in good shape with perfect pliable leather. I meant to bid but forgot about it as there was one of those really late war Luftschutz armbands that just says LS. It was in very faint blue ink. I'll see if I can recover the photos some how. It didn't have the papers like yours.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
