H039370 MAP ACCESSORY POUCH. (Karte Beiwerk 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. The M35 map/dispatch cases were issued with assorted map reading tools, instruments and accessories. One of the items issued with the M35 map/dispatch cases was a map accessory case which contained assorted map grid scale tools. 

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Roughly, 22cm tall, 17cm wide, field-grey canvas construction map accessory pouch with machine stitched seams. The pouch features a fold over top flap with dual, magnetic sheet metal, "Prym" snap closures. The front body of the pouch has a small rectangular patch pocket machine stitch in place. When in the closed position the top fold over flap covers the front pocket to ensure against losing the enclosed items. The top flap has a white stenciled abbreviation, "Z.m.P.", indicating, Zielgevierttafel mit Planzeiger, (Boundary Quadrant Table with Map Reading Scale). The interior of the pouch has two compartments with a central, grey chamois separating panel to protect the enclosed tools. The pouch is in overall very good condition with light age and usage toning. Superb example.
