WW2 Axis Forces Pencil
A WW2 German made pencil made for the Japanese Army. The black unsharpened pencil is marked:
‘Kriegs Bedarf No 259 O.M.P’ (followed by the Japanese Army star and in Japanese kanji) ’Army’.
‘Kriegs Bedarf’ from German to English translates as ‘War Needs’.
I have searched extensively and can find no reference to, or pictures of similar items.
