    WW1 Shovel Cover Markings, German, Austro-Hungarian, Bulgarian? Need Help!

    I am hoping that someone can help me out with a stamped marking on a shovel cover that I picked up the other day. The cover appears to be one of the old, WW1 era, Austro-Hungarian covers, that ended up being modified later in its life. It is marked T.D. II with an A above it. This is an abbreviation that I do not recognize. Could it possibly be Bulgarian, Romanian, etc. from a much later era? Thanks for any information anyone can provide!

    I don't know if this is accurate as it applies to your shovel-cover, but as far as Austro-Hungarian unit marking go, the initials T.D. usually (not always) stand for Traindivision when found stamped onto weapons or equipment. The Roman numeral II. could stand for the II. Korps. "A" could be the manufacturer but I'd have to look further into that. This is, of course, assuming the cover is Austro-Hungarian.
