L022881 LUFTWAFFE SIGNAL HORN.
WW2 German Luftwaffe Signal Horn with Extremely RARE Auxiliary Carrying Device (Hilfstragevorrichtung). Silver bugle inscribed on the front of the horn to Fliegerhorstkommandantur Magdeburg 6. Made by the firm of O. O. Schmidt & Sohn of Döbeln in 1936. Well-worn Luftwaffe grey wool wrapping in the correct style has some small wear or moth holes. Worn mouthpiece shows brass beneath silver plating. Complete with the correct brown leather carrying strap affixed to the two horn rings with spring clips and the extremely RARE Luftwaffe Horn Carrying Device, or Hilfstragevorrichtung, depicted in Angolia's 3-Volume reference book set on the Luftwaffe Uniforms and Equipment published by Bender Publishing. The Army had a similar device shown in the illustration on the lower right of page 569 of Uniforms and Equipment of the German Army by Angolia and Schlicht, Volume 3. The hourglass-shaped black leather device forms a supporting loop for the horn to rest in, and is lined in Luftwaffe grey wool. A clip-and-loop system similar to a dagger hanger clip holds it closed when the upper portion of the horn is inside. The auxiliary carrying device keeps the bugle secure to the belt when marching so it doesn't bounce around, and is maker marked "Otto Sindel Berlin 1942." Very rare to find complete and unit-marked in this condition.
