SHIPPING BOX – SENT TO SOLDIER IN Württemberg
This is a small cardboard box that measures 6″ x 4″ x 3.” It was used to ship small items to a soldier serving in the army or at the Front. Transport for gifts to soldiers was quite limited, so small boxes like this were required to limit the amount sent.
These boxes were often filled with small gifts and those necessities that were difficult-to-obtain. I cannot see a date when it was mailed, but it was mailed TO a Kingdom of Württemberg soldier serving in Kompagnie Nr 8 of Infanterie-Regiment Nr 127.
The box is in excellent condition and would make a fine part of a soldier’s display.
