Original Nazi 1st Pattern Reichsluftschutzbund (RLB) Enlisted Belt Buckle with Belt
This is an outstanding set consisting of a frosted silver-finished brass belt buckle with a pebbled surface and a black-painted swastika. The buckle is RZM-marked "78" with a "PuC" (Paulmann & Crone) maker's mark. The near excellent light brown polished leather belt is unit-marked "7.39 B.A. Fü." and has the stamped maker's marking "STECHER FREIBERG 6 39". The belt is size-marked "100". There is a sizing strap sewn into the belt.
This RLB belt buckle with leather belt came with a pile of war souvenirs sent back by the father and the uncle of the family member I purchased them from. The father (Oscar Louis Heckel) served in Normandy, Northern France, Rhineland, Ardennes, and Central Europe as an Army light truck driver. The uncle (Herman Joseph Heckel) was an Army T/5 tank driver with the 9th Armored Division, 2nd Tank Battalion. The uncle was killed in action during the Battle of the Bulge and is buried at Henri Chapelle in Belgium. Item #0207-5
