Richtkreis 31 Leather Carrying Case (Cavalry?)
Over the year picking up these leather pouches, some was in poor conditions and some been converted and stripped of the partitions for other use.
Cleaned and restored one by one and link up together to form a system for the RK31.
It is fun to carrying it when empty, buy the weight made the strap ate into shoulder when in full load.
Trying to complete a prewar all brown set, which are dated 1936 and 1938.
Also a mid war set with a black presstoff lighting pouch date 1942, the big pouch for the optic body still the same date 1936 and the scope pouch is 1938.

 

The one and only pic of a party of Waffen SS, third soldat from the right is carrying this leather set together with a tripod hook on the leather strap, such a super human act like no weight on his shoulder.
