German Heer/Waffen-SS issued combat map board, dated 1937
A period factory made and Heer/Waffen-SS issued map board. Constructed from plywood, works and opens perfectly. The officer personalized it with the addition of a leather compartment from a Russian satchel as well as several places for storing pencils. Nicely maker marked and dated « 1937 ». This type of map board is seen in every front during WWII. The same model is displayed in the La Gleize museum (Belgium), which belonged to « SS-Obersturmbannführer » Jochen Peiper and was found on the La Gleize battlefield just after the battle in January 1945. Desirable and difficult to find.
