Anyone ever hear of the word "doppkit" used for the shaving kits
servicement used in WWII? Tom Murray has heard it from a 60ish
colleague, but its not in DARE or anywhere else.
I remember hearing my two older brothers use this term in reference to
their faux-leather, zippered shaving kit bags in the mid-1960's. I
had always presumed that it was a trademarked term.
