Content: This item is a set of three equipment lists, probably from 1943 or 1944. Each list gives details of equipment and ordnance to be carried by different military units, including gun mounts, gun carriages, bullets and gunpowder. The lists show how the type and amount of equipment carried varies according to the type of unit; e.g., machine gun platoon, field artillery, or pom-pom gun platoon. At the end of each list are notes on preparation and maintenance of the equipment and ordnance. This item was captured at Finschhafen in April 1944.
