Nice haul of Litzmannstadt made items ! I'm still looking for breadbag with carrying strap ( I missed strap on site of one of the dealers lately ) and A-frame with bag and bayonet frog ( seen some none of theem marked in any way ). You are missing as far as I see Litzmannstadt A-frame and Y-straps. I wondering if anyone has web belt made in Litzmannstadt ( suspecting that it had been made since Y-straps, bayonet frogs, A-frames, and backpacks were made ).

Hello guys!!
I checked the list of rbnr and I noticed that some manufacturers are located inside the ghetto Litzmannstadt always corresponds to the first digit 0/1305/----

0/1305/0103 W. Stolarow & Co.

0/1305/0291 Handschuh-u. Trikotagenfabrik "Rex" GmbH

0/1305/0497 Spinnerei Erwin Peter

0/1305/5215 Bastfaseraufbereitung Ost GmbH

0/1305/5313 Robert Steiger &. Sohn

I have a backpack from pionier with parts of material English

My theory is that marked 1943 brit webbing are from the Arnhem disaster

I understood the accepted thinking on the recycling of British webbing that it had been captured at Dunkirk or elsewhere 'on the continent', as we Brits call it, in June 1940.
So logic would seem to dictate, and in my experience many surviving examples using recycled British web show, 1939 & 1940 dated maker marks.

But here we clearly have an original item - of that I have next to no doubt - but with British webbing dated 1943. This is too late even for it to have been recycled from equipment abandoned in August 1942 at the failed raid on Dieppe.

So what theories can you folks suggest to explain this?

Here's my own, just to start the ball rolling

Britain & USA both supplied USSR with "Lend-Lease" equipment. Litzmannstadt/Lodz is closer to the Eastern front than any theatre of war involving British troops, at least until mid-1944, so having some understanding of the way German minds work, it seems quite possible to me that this clearly British webbing may have come from stocks captured from the Soviets.

Despite my being British, I'm no expert on individual items of Pattern '37 web equipment, and don't immediately recognise what the strap on Grubhy's rucksack would originally have been.
My first thought was a weapon sling, but it looks to me more like a soldier's personal equipment strap...

now over to others, probably more expert than me

Jon
