Wooden Box 'Gen.Komp.Gren.Ers.Btl.466'


Nice hand-made wooden souvernir box with carved inscription "Gen.Kom. Gren.Ers.Btl.466" (Genesenden Kompanie Grenadier Ersatz Bataillon 466). In the "Genesenden-Kompanie" (recovering company) the soldiers were 'gathered' who, after they had become wounded or ill, were not yet fully fit for deployment at the front. This box was probably made in the field hospital as a pastime and used to store personal belonings. The box is sized approximately 30 x 20 x 15 cms. One of the metal closure clips is missing, the box is in overall good condition, see photos. Decorative original box!
