Hi Wolf,

The crossed out one, the one issued on June 7 1941 is a Czech weapon.
The entry is spelled in Suetterlinschrift German, Tsch, stands for Tschechisch.
It is normal for Landesschützen to be armed with foreign weapons.
Some information on Lds Btl 532:

Cheers,

That is a great site Peter. I wish I knew German better.

Hello,
Thanks Peter.
I can read some Suetterlin, but this time I shipwrecked with the lower case "t".
Thanks
