In this example, an early type bag is shown with a 1943 dated cape.
The bag was made by Gebrüder Wendler G.m.b.H. Reutlingen and whilst it has the characteristics of an early bag the lack of a date, means this is only an assumption.
The cape was made by Deutsche Linoleum-Werke A.G., Bieetigheim, Kr. Ludwigsburg who used the code a g d. It was manufactured in September 1943 and is complete with an original paper band.
Gasplanes by this manufacturer are relatively common and I have seen examples dating from 1941 through to 1944. All have been black and have the same detail shown on the paper label.
