Zeltbahn lovers will like this one
A similar one with some bunkers stools for addtionnal comfort
and these guys also love beer!
I almost got my first one. I only made the automatic reply system pay at most 160 euros and the other guy sniped me 1 minute before the end.
160 euros! Genuine ones go 70 euros here, providing you accept a few holdes and are not too hooke don perfect markings .
Here is a tropen one , I think for Luftwaffe fellows
I just can't believe how 'collectible' these have become......I bought all of mine between 2010-2011 and easily found them for between 35-55 Euros. But I still think that every Wehrmacht collection should have at least one - like the gasmask canister, they are such a typical piece of equipment.
I confirm, You can't get a decent mannequin with a Tornister without Zeltbahn , noblesse oblige!
Better come to France then...
or go to France internet sites. I can also get you one if language is a barier.
Skipper, I hate to tell you this... but he's got no pants...
No wonder they lost! If only Hitler had issued trousers!
Folded behind the Mauser slime.
'kipper, I thought that was a blanket.
What's object no. 6?
6 is an early model gasplane cape (anti yperite). made from rubberised vegetable fibre. Later model bag came in cloth . .It was to remain inseparable from the container and mask . They are famous for their..... stench .
Surely it doesn't smell still? :green:
I wonder if I got more Zeltbahns in one photo than any one else...check the right corner...
One more here with plenty of details. The caption says it's Royan, France in 1942.
These last photos look familiar. This is the way I set up my display for county fairs, outdoor militaria shows, usv.
I then set up a small wooden table with a WW2 SS typewriter and other items (Lw field radio +) on it and a WW 2 vintage wooden folding chair I got in Germany. Close by I have an MG 42 on an AA tripod.
Guess some day I should take some photos of this, but never have.
so you are the one having a nap in there, just wait until I tell the Leutnant !
Just got this original snapshot with some nice 'Zelt' detail. This guy certainly does look like a veteran......
He looks weary too. He seems to be wearing two bahnen and there is at least another one on the left.
