Huge 1943 field desk


Recommended Posts

Actually I think this is for mail distribution. It's not set up properly as it has a pair of 3 way folding legs that attach to it. 1943 dated. I have never encountered one of these before and I can't find any pictures on line of one.

That is pretty cool. I love unusual stuff like that. It does look like a PO center. When I was in Afghanistan, the post office was run by the Navy with civilian contract clerks.

Thanks for posting it.

Got it set up finally. It's a big monster. The bottom compartment has removable partitions. Once taken out the legs are folded up and strapped into the large compartment for storage.

Looks really good Robin. Maybe fill it with period mail/letters...

Crapgame: His name is Kelly. Used to be a Lieutenant, pretty good one too-

until someone gave him orders to attack the wrong hill. Wiped out half a company of GI's...

Somebody had to get the blame so he got picked....

Oddball (Laughing): Oh man, I don't like officers...

Crapgame (Laughing): Neither does he, so relax!

Ever fire up the M- 37 range? Wish I had room.
