Shovel MG 08 - MG 08 Spaten

MG 08 Spaten

These small shovels were used by machine guns teams of World War I. 
The short arm is not rested against the ground when the gunner was preparing to fire. Easy enough tool does not aggravate the already difficult lives machine-gun crew.
Of course, the short arm reduced performance when excavation works. But there is clearly based on considerations that it is better to have a machine gunner scoop than not having anything at all.
