Original German WWII Zeltbahn Tent Quarter & Poncho in Splinter Pattern Reversible Camouflage

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. The German Zeltbahn or Army Tent Quarter was a multi-purpose piece of German army regulation equipment that was issued to Wehrmacht soldiers during WWII. This piece of camouflaged material could be combined with three other to make a proper tent, or other quantities to construct shelters of various sizes, it was also used for camouflage, as a poncho or even a stretcher. This example comes in the very attractive reversible German Army Splinter pattern, with most of the original aluminum buttons still present.

The Zeltbahn 31 was developed in 1931 and found its origin in the square Reichswehr tent. It was made of a water repellent material called Makostoff and is imprinted with a camouflage pattern which is also known as Army Splinter Pattern (Heeres Splitter Muster 31), another phrase used was: Buntfarbenaufdruck (colourful print).

This example shows only light wear, with some stains and small holes, as well as some wear to the print. We were not able to find any markings, but this is definitely an original WWII example. They were usually marked on the edge, and even prime examples have very faint markings. It is complete aside from missing buttons. Ready to display!
