Meldebüchse für Heereshunde (Msg box for Army dogs). German WW2.
Very Rare! Tube for messages which dogs wore around their neck and carried between i.e the frontline and HQ. The message was written on paper, the tube was unscrewed in one end and the message scrolled up and the tube was closed. This one is in fairly nice condition, but the end cap is rusted so I haven`t tried really to unscrew it in fear of damaging it. Stamped 1936. Found on a capitulation site in Northern Norway where units from I.R 193 capitulated after having withdrawn from the fronts around Kirkenes-Murmansk. A very cool collectible.
