WH (Heer) M35 Map/Dispatch Case (Meldekartentasche M35). Map/dispatch cases were issued on a limited basis to specifically designated personnel such as unit commanders, messengers, and observers. The M35 map/dispatch case was based on the Weimar era Reichsheer pattern map/dispatch case with minor variations. The M35 map/dispatch cases were issued with assorted map reading tools, instruments and accessories. The natural tan leather interior of the case has two compartments with a central leather separating panel. The light brown leather map case is nicely maker marked by the company of 'Sachs & Deiselberg' from Hamburg and dated 1938. A written name of a 'Hauptmann' is visible inside the flap. Nice original map case in very good condition!
This map case originates from the collection of the recently closed Eyewitness Museum and was in display in the diorama in the last picture!
