Heer / W-SS M35 Map / Dispatch Case 


Map / dispatch cases were issued on a limited basis to specifically designated personnel such as unit commanders, messengers, and observers. The M35 map/dispatch case was based on the Weimar era, Reichsheer pattern map/dispatch case with minor variations. The M35 map/dispatch case underwent a front closure modification in mid-1936, and an additional small front pocket was added in 1938, although the early pattern cases continued to be manufactured through-out the war. The M35 map/dispatch cases were issued with assorted map reading tools, instruments and accessories.


M35 map/dispatch case with steel fittings. The case is 27cm tall and 19cm wide. The case has a fold over top closure flap with press button closure. The front under closure flap of the case features a ruler pocket to the right side, pencil holders and a small pocket to the left side. When in the closed position the top fold over flap covers the top openings of the ruler, pencil and tool pockets to ensure against losing the items.
