    The SS Zeltbahn

    The SS followed the Army's 1931 pattern splinter groundsheet with its own Schick designed camouflage pattern tent-groundsheet in 1936.
    The designs evolved from the simple to complex as more research and development continued.
    Schick was the driving force behind development and his drawings have shaped modern military prints to this very day.
    The high quality work and it's simple design proved itself very well and this article of equipment proved very popular with the men.
    It has many functions from tent to stretcher to burial shroud.

      The Splinter pattern Zelt.
      The SS felt this could be improved upon and began their own development.

        Due to the scale of the item I will do my best to capture the pattern like this showing front and back
        The Splinter did have 2 different light and dark prints.
        It eventually has a SS type brown side

                Maker marked 1940 here is a hand screened 1-2 pattern in mint condition
                The pattern is very strong.

                  As the print was hand screened here you can see the human hand marks of the screen being cleaned during application.

                        It's worth noting zelts frequently used other pAtterns and here we see the Oak making an appearance thus we can date Oak from 1940

                          The head placket also showing a roller Oak with a roller 1-2 pattern panel thus showing us more modern methods were being employed as production ramped up

                              Here's a 1-2 pattern with 2 1 sections
                              It's a murky print still high quality
