 Hello fellow Tropen enthusiasts!
My name is Lawrence. I am fellow forum member, Erik aka Unfront's brother, and long time collector of german militaria. Like him, my focus is on ground forces of the Third Reich....but have a love for it all!
I look forward to sharing as well as learning from this forum. One of the best parts of this hobby is that there is no end to what we can learn. It is endless! Although I have other tropical german items to soon share, I thought I would start out by sharing a recent shot of my basic field gear and personal effects as would have been typically carried by a Heeres soldier serving in Nord Afrika.
Enjoy and I look forward to the future! 
Wessels


Hi Wessels,
thats a good looking and comprehensive selection of field gear and personal effects.
Here is my tropical water bottle.

Regards,
Jerry


Sand camo binoe's, though the serial number and the triangle mark make them from late 43, I think, so not from Afrika, but maybe Italy.  Very good, whatever, IMO.
The true colour is somewhere between the range shown in the pictures.
Regards,
Jerry

 Adding a couple of small items with a tropical theme, though not exclusively tropical.  Two packets of cigarette rolling papers with the Efka pyramid logo and a cigarette tin, marked tropical packing.

Here are a few photos of my tropical field gear.

 Thank you all. Here is a photo of my ruck sack and zelt set up - complete with tropical web equipment and shoulder straps.


And one of the reverse:

Here are a few smaller items to start off with, the match safe is a Aussie Vet desert pick up.
Again you can see were it has been burnt by something? And wondering if anybody knows the
history of these cigarettes they have the German Eagle & Swaztika but have these Arab symbols
in the corners. Was the German Army in the Mediterranean getting their tobacco supplies from Turkey
or some other Arab nation??? Or were they always getting their supplies from an Arab nation? As they have
Dresden printed on them but then have Orient-Cigaretten on the back, so i'm a bit confused, whats goin on ere :rolleyes:
These cigarettes have not been opened.

Awesome set ups.
Pity that some of the photos have been lost.
