N072378 HJ/DJ ENTRENCHING TOOL. (Kurzer Spaten)

BACKGROUND: Sports in the early period of the Third Reich had a subversive underlaying role as a form of military training, due to the restrictions imposed on the Germans by the Treaty of Versailles. As a result, sporting events were very highly regarded by the NSDAP as pre-military training and toughening up exercises for the German Youth. One form of this pre-military physical training consisted of route marches and camping exercises. When participating in these march/camping events HJ personnel wore the full march order uniform which consisted of assorted fieldgear based on existing military equipment and included an entrenching tool.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Small, non-folding entrenching tool. Total length of 46cm. Blade is nicely marked.
