WW2 German 200 Litre fuel drum

Post by Rajeee » Sun Nov 19, 2017 6:11 pm

Hi

I collect Jerry Cans but now want to find a drum or two.
Not very common but I am looking to buy a WAFFEN SS 200 litre KAFTSTOFF. (Fuel drum). I will also look at other branches of Axis containers

Either here in North America or Europe.

Thanks Adam

Thanks for posting that picture! Wow I've never seen one of those. Good luck on your search. I've purchased regular German Jerry cans from sellers in the former Eastern Bloc countries and have been amazed at what they have available. Possibly contact them and ask them. They list regularly on Ebay.

RE stands for Regio Esercito (Italiano) or Royal Italian Army during WW2, so the Italian ones were marked as such.
There were probably a few hundred scattered around one of the most impressive war museums Ive ever visited.Museo Storico Piana delle Orme In Sabaudia south of Rome.
I stopped counting special versions of MBs and GPWs after 30....M5 Greyhounds after 10.....etc. Even had a perfectly preserved P40 that survived a ditching at Anzio as well as the only completely surviving original Sherman DD as well as some landing craft.
They also had about half the 200 WW2 SPA T.37s ever produced scatered around the museum in different exhibits.

Adam,
Saw this at the big militaria meet in La Gleize in the Ardennes last weekend.
I asked for you, but the seller said this one wasn’t for sale. I could have put it into my shipping contaner back to Ottawa next month!

I just picked up a Wehrmacht 1943 marked fuel drum the other day.
I had been looking for one for a long time. Haven't taken any pictures yet.

Last October, I've sold 5 drums like that for 20€ each.
The buyer told me that these drums could be sold from 25€ to ... 50€ :shock: !
They were abandoned by the Germans here.
They used to contain synthetic gasoline (yellow color) with an horrible smell.
After a transfer into British jerrycans, we've used that gasoline as a solvent.
The drums will likely be used in a reenactment in Bastogne/The Bulge.
My 6th drum is now used as a furnace :mrgreen: !
