    WW2 GERMAN ARMY SOLDIERS ZELBAHN

    History

    Zeltbahn or German 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 tent, or other quantities to construct shelters of various sizes, it was also used for camouflage, as a poncho, a carry bag, or even a stretcher.

    Historically, 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, another phrase used was: Buntfarbenaufdruck.
