In two recent threads regarding German 9x19mm ammunition boxes, the markings were related to two service ammuntion plants:
Heeres Munitionsanstalt Jüterbog, about 40 miles south of Berlin
Luft Munitionsanstallt Höfer, approximately 20 KM north-east of Celle or 50 KM north-east of Hannover .
I began wondering what other ammunition plants existed so I began looking through my German boxes and box photos. I found three boxes with “Ammunition Plant/Munitionsanstalt” markings.
Two boxes are marked “H. Ma. Jg.” which perhaps is Jüterbog, but perhaps there was a Munitionsanstalt at Jngolftadt or somewhere else using this “Jg”. I think Jngolftadt is unlikely. The 1938 dates seem pretty late for Jngolftadt and on their 1910 ball cartridges, the box used only “J” and not “Jg” to identify the arsenal.
The other box identified another Luft Munitionsanstalt.
Any information on either of these two Munitionsanstalt would be welcome.
Are there other Munitionsanstalt identified on German boxes or otherwise identified in documentation?
I assume that the Munitionsanstalt markings occur on other calibers of ammunition. True or False???
There must have also been one or more Munitionsanstalt supporting the Navy. Is there a record of these plants?
Appreciate your assistance…
An interesting area (at least to me) that I have not heard discussed before.
