    Default Notes in German WW2 ammo cases and 15 round boxes

    I have posted these before on other sites. I have found three such notes over the years. Two were from women working in the plants and the third is from an SS member. Two were folded neatly and placed in the 15 round boxes. The one from the SS member was stuffed between two sleeves before the tin was welded on.That case was from a "repack" station in 1941. The tin had been opened and chargers had been installed on the cartridges, the case had then been re-sealed. I was the next to open it. JH

    Default Notes in 7,9 boxes

    Here is another note, dated 1936. All seem to say/mean about the same thing, that is: " best wishes & good luck from the homeland" a very rough paraphrase. JH

    Perhaps the "36" is part of the address and not the date. I will let our German reading experts here decide. I had always thought it was a signature date but who knows. Cartridges are from 1935 and I have included a picture of the box, a generic repack box, which is not dated. JH

    The "36" imo doesn't mean 1936 but is a part of a home address, so that the soldier could write to the girl that sent her regards.

    Cheers,
