Here you can see the holes from a stitching.

There was a string attached to wear the shelter-half as a raincape.

The pictures is from the book "Die k.u.k. Armee - Christian Ortner"

Hi Grenadier1982,

Yes, I have one. It appears to be unissued, but is maker and depot marked. This came into my collection in 1987. I don't see any stitching or other evidence of a missing cord. There is a cord that runs across the Zeltblatt from tip to tip, but it is sewn inside the canvas and is only for reiforcement.

Chip

Hi Chip,

that's really an awesome piece!

For my knowledge every Zeltblatt has got this cord.
Maybe there were differrent Zeltblätter.

Hello Grenadier1982,

My example is an early one. Perhaps this feature was added later? You piece looks like it is dated 1918.

Regards,
Chip

Was this the one that was on ebay recently? If so, I was planning on bidding and wondered where it went!

Very nice
