Title Tube of SS issue frost salve
Nationality German
Period c 1942-45
Price £45.00

Marked: 'Frostschutsssalbe // Wehrkreissanitarspack VI // Osnabruck // SS-Packung', also with 'Leere Tuben sammeln' ('collect the empty tubes' - the original recyclers!), this stuff was used to protect the lips and nose from the cold and possibly, in extreme conditions, the feet and hands. It would have been most useful on the Russian Front.

The cork seal inside the lid is present, although it has been opened. However, very little appears to have been used. The salve appears to be similar to a scentless vaseline preparation.

The tube has various nicks and dings, as one might expect, but, considering its age, it is an amazing survivor.

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesn’t really get swords.
