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.

It came on Wednesday, in perfect condition, excellent piece. I will be ordering from you soon I'm sure, many thanks.

Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...
