WW1 COMMEMORATIVE ETCHED ENTRENCHING TOOL. Unusual item. Consists of a combat issue entrenching tool with a gloss black painted handle with a silver colour finished shovel head (reverse of the shovel head still has much of the field-grey painted finish remaining). Obverse has a large etched and painted dedication, to the centre of which is a facsimile of a 1914 Iron Cross. Much of the surrounding original dedication has unfortunately been lost over time. The only clearly visible wording is 'Aus Deutschelands gross......' Light surface rust over much of the obverse. All rivets to both the handle and shovel head are present and secure. An interesting and rare item of field gear for the WW1 collector. Grade II-
