H008777 MAP/DISPATCH CASE DISTANCE MEASURING METER & POUCH. (Meldekartentasche Kurvenmesser mit Tasche)

BACKGROUND: 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 case underwent a front closure modification in mid-1936, and an additional small front pocket was added in 1938, although the early pattern cases continued to be manufactured through-out the war. When issued the map/dispatch cases came complete with an assortment of map reading and plotting tools and instruments including a map distance measuring meter. The distance meters came in a wide variety of different models but they were all quite similar in design.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Nice combination compass and measuring meter. Functions perfectly. Pre-WW2 marking (Germany) would date it from the 1930's. Complete with original leather case. There is a small tear to the case.
