1942 Tp

This example shows a relatively rare 1942 Tropical (Tp) marked pouch. Whilst Tp pouches by themselves are not hard to find, it is the early date on this example that elevates it above the crowd.

It was manufactured by Rudolph & co, Textile-Gummiwaren Fabrik (Saxonia) who was assigned the code cee. There is also the marking Rate 19 which might be a reference to a production or batch number.

The cape is a standard type and was manufactured in January 1942 by a company assigned the code g j p.
