Typical German Medical Items Used in North Africa.

I figured I would at least post a couple of nice medic pouches that could have used by the German military in Africa. One pouch is early war slightly darker brown in color marked Paul Klopfer 1938 and the other is a mid-war medium brown in color stamped dny 1942. Paper label inside lid is in excellent condition showing contents designated to be enclosed. Also pouches are designated right or left by the large letter on the lid or hinge. smile   Barron

I have a nice selection of bandages and restriction bands but from what I can tell most of the contents of this pouch were medicines including opiates.  Barron

Re: Typical German Medical Items Used in North Africa.

Fair enough, I'd be surprised if anyone even advertised the original restricted medicines for sale.

Imagine trying to get that through the post hmm

Regards Markus.

Re: Typical German Medical Items Used in North Africa.

Sometimes it is worthwhile though to find a clear photo of the contents for educational purposes! Even that sometimes isn't the easiest thing to locate!  Barron

Re: Typical German Medical Items Used in North Africa.

Here is the second later war pouch. Not much difference. It is the left side pouch to go with the other one. Enjoy!   Barron

Re: Typical German Medical Items Used in North Africa.

Nice pouch Barron.  You probably know that in German and English the abbreviations L and R mean the same.

L = links (left in English).
R = rechts (right in English).

Thanks for posting.

Markus.
