Product Description


New reproduction tent poles for use with German WWII Zeltbahn Tents. These are the same size as originals- 38cm- just under 15". According to regulation, each soldier was issued one pole and two tent stakes. Four troops got together to make one tent. However, many soldiers preferred more room and "found" extra poles and zelts. These are priced individually. Marked and dated.

Look too new? The metal reinforcements are zinc plated and will oxidize and turn dull gray over time. (Originals were either blued or zinc plated.) The wood can easily be "aged" with linseed oil or "Old English" dark scratch cover. (That's what I used on this pole to demonstrate.)
