In military cartridges Part 2, W.D. de Hek 1998, there are still at least 10 known codes within Bohemia, for which the manufacturer has not been identified: rfd, rid,ril,she,vzh,zwj,zyj,ux,tno,tgf .


Oskar Schindler bought munitions from other suppliers, to pass off as his own. The Krakow works was originally known under its Polish name:Fabryka Naczyn Emaliowanych, so any allocated codes may be under this name form.

A real mystery, as it would have been a basic identifier to the factory. Of the small quantities of munitions produced within the plant, there must have been bunters, for stamping metal and wood. People must have remembered working there, and paperwork probably survived within Schindler's personal documents.

Point of note, aside from cartridge cases, fuzes, etc, the Deutsche Emaillierwarenfabrik started out with, and continued to make wehrmacht mess tins.

There is a reference to blue enamel wehrmacht mugs, marked mtd 44. Not sure if this is correct though
