Introduction

I have created this site to improve the knowledge of the World War Two German Gasplane.

Whilst the Gasplane pouch or tasche is often seen in period photographs of German soldiers, photographs from this time of the Gasplane are rare. This makes it difficult to identify original wartime examples. Another challenge is that a large number of manufacturers were involved in making Gasplanen has resulted in a number of variations that have deviated from a “standard” example. The picture becomes even more fuzzy if you then add the variants made for arctic and tropical climates.

I would like to hear from you if you notice any problems with the site, corrections and absolutely anything related to the Gasplane; examples from your own collections, paperwork like soldbuch entries, period photos etc.
