MELDEBÜCHSE FÜR HEERESHUNDE (MSG BOX FOR ARMY DOGS)
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 very nice condition, Stamped 1934. Found on a capitulation site in Northern Norway where units from I.R 193 capitulated after having withdrawn from the fronts around Kirkenes-Murmansk.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.

A few months back Andris came up with the idea that we should make our own "relic wax" to use for protecting our relics from further rusting and deteriorating.
Microcrystalline waxes and a tiny bit of resins was blended to a suitable consistency and suddenly we had a lot of it. It was made way too much for our own use so some jars and labels was produced and we can now offer this wax for all you collectors as well.
The wax is best applied in a thin layer and it will dry hard quickly and then you buff it using a soft cloth or just your fingers. For larger items I have diluted the wax with white spirits until a milky like consistency and applied it with a brush before buffing it.
A little goes a long way.
