I also have never seen this type of unit marking before. Impressive.

The address of Martin Eurich is written Wohringen / Schwaben

but this is a mistake because the town is correctly named Woringen - without "h"

https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Woringen

A family Eurich is still living in Woringen today.

It could be a typo or perhaps it has changed over time.

I am certain no change in the official writing of the name but typ error could be possible.

The "mask" with the elongated can shown in the photo is the "A.M.E. Gerät", normally worn with a pair of goggles which were carried in a separate waist pouch. I have two of these masks.
