Reproduction of the Continuation War ID tag and card set. Sets like these were issued to every man along with their military pass.
The set comes with an original unissued Continuation War period ID tag. It has two 3 mm cotton strings attached to it. We’ve hand dyed the string in the correct greyishgreen colour. In other words, that the string has colour on the surface but if twisted or cut, it’ll show the natural white colour on the inside. Just like the originals were. You can wear both strings around the neck, or for example one around the chest and one around the neck. That was one of the more common ways to wearing these.
The ID card is an important part of the ID tag. The card is to be carried in the soldiers chest pocket. The information included in it are the ID tag number, name of the soldier and the closest relative. Besides helping medical service, it also functioned as a sort of identification for the men in general. We sourced the cardboard used in these in the correct 0,85 mm thickness. Also triple bent in the middle. Subsequently these are pretty much exact copies of the originals.
Made in Finland from start to finish.
