          nice ones Edwin. love how the '43 is in white ink, thats a first for me. and as I said, love the late war stuff. '45, not many of these markings out there. those late wars are keepers. Glenn

            Great thread!! Most of my zelts have came from Edwin and Im very happy with them. I wanted to ask a question and hope its ok to ask in this thread. Was/is there a specific way to fold a zelt. I thought there might be a specific way so it would fit or attach to thier gear better. Thanks and nice zelts!!!

              Glenn, I knew you would like the white stamped '43 zelt.
              If I have some time left this weekend I post some more stamps

              Cheers

              Edwin

                hello

                thanks for sharing more stamps, you have a few different types there Edwin, agree that is a first for me a white stamp.

                Glenn, yes I see it now you told me Schmidt, I wonder if the mark below is a gothic script T for Thruingen? just an idea,

                History, well there is a method shown in a few books, Brian Davis book is a good one, cant remember the title off hand right now,
                basically if you see my picture no. 4 , its not to many more steps from this, basically you are squaring off the triangle to make it neater in the roll,
                from this stage you fold it in half again, cant think if its one more fold in half, then you roll it up

                any 1940 dates out there?

                cheers

                  Hello John,
                  I didn't know you were about to launch this thread so soon, otherwise i would have taken some pics of my Zeltbahnen. I'll try to take some as soon as possible in order to keep this nice thread on the tracks...

                                Good evening men,if I may be permitted to join in here,here are some of the markings on some of my zeltbahnen.

                                No 2.Made by TEXTILL WERKE.Karl Anton Kassel 1942.

                                No.3.Undated with Rbnr.

                                No.4.Rbnr dated 1944,note bakelite buttons.

                                Last a family pic,four marked and four unmarked.

                                Don't you just love camo!Regards Jerry.
