German 5 liter cans,can you identify these???

Post by Sam Simons-Indiana » Tue Oct 28, 2003 6:30 pm

Hi All,

A good chum recently gave me several of these(NEW),all having
this information:

Kraftstoff (fuel or gasoline)
TGL
4368
feuergetahrlich (warning-flammable)


These are obviously the 'real deal',not French 'VIN/VINO' containers.
I'm very curious about the original application and vehicle(s) that
they might have been issued on.I'll guess mid-late '60's time period.
Also,between the 'TGL' and '4368' is a circle with the letters "WB"
inside of it.
He's also bringing me a few of the 'reduced size' 10 liter cans;these
cans retain all of the proportions of the 20L units,only smaller(not
'stubby' as the 10L cans that I've always seen...). I've not yet seen
this type of can,so I'm excited. These will work great for kitting out
the GAZ......

regards,
Sam
