Luftwaffe Aluminium Milk or Water Jug - Click for the bigger picture

Luftwaffe Aluminium Milk or Water Jug

This pitcher, which we assume would have been for milk or water, is made from aluminium with a metal handle. It is stamped HRE 40 which is the German WWII manufacturing code for the factory Heinrich Ritter Esslingen and indicates a year of manufacture 1940. The base carries a fine Luftwaffe eagle and FL.UV indicating 'Flieger Unterkunft Verwaltung', translated meaning 'Flight Barracks Administration.' Interestingly below the eagle is a very clear date 1939 so would appear this jug was made at the turn of the year 1939/40 based on the manufacturing code stamp date. This is the perfect item for a living history group or for a general Luftwaffe collector. In view of its size it makes a real statement and as a bonus would have certainly served through the battle of Britain period. Measures 15" high x 9" diameter at base (38 cm high x 22 cm diameter at base.)
