Ditty Box #12 - Obtained From Poland! Vintage WWII German Navy Kriegsmarine Standard Issue Regulation Ditty Box or in German or "Eigentum Effecten Kasten or just Eigentum Kasten" (Personal Effects Box or Personal Box) Used Exclusively by the U-Boat Unterseeboot Fleet. The Construction Method Using Tin Hardware is Indicative of WWII Vintage, Not the Earlier WWI Kaiserliche Marine or the Reichsmarine. Has the Name "Loteu" or "Loten" Hand Inscribed on One Side.

Ditty Boxes were used by enlisted sailors and crew to store their most treasured personal possessions while at sea, as well as personal items needed on an everyday basis. Examples of these would be letters from family members, favorite photographs, other treasures found at various ports-of-call. Everyday needed items would be Forks, Spoons, Knives before the centralized mess, tobacco, smoking pipes, cups, razors, soap and tolietries, sewing kits.

It is for the above reasons why we here at The Pirate's Lair honor, respect and treasure these ditty boxes as part of our collection since we understand that they and their contents were the most valuable things a sailor possessed while at sea traveling the world over and knowingly going into harms way! We also think that many of our clients may feel the same way and as such are making some available for purchase.
