Default Heer Plate and Spoon

A friend has a bunch of Third Reich dishes and silverware. These two items have a H.U. Marking. Any idea what about the meaning of the H.U.?

You may find this earlier thread of interest (as well as informative):

http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...d.php?t=709807

A literal translation would be "Army accomodation".

We might better understand it as "Army property"
