WWI German Zeltbahn army tent Poles + Rope marked : Geseherbershouse 1916, Coln

We offer you an original WWI army Zeltbahn tent set of poles. The poles were made in Germany and were delivered to the Bulgarian royal army, as it
 was Germany’s ally in WWI. This model of poles was used by Germany
 and its allies during both world wars. Every soldier carried a tent (plascht) and a set of poles together with the rest of his equipment. The bag of poles used to be attached to the havierbag by means of two straps with buttons.  The set we offer comprises: 

 >>  3 poles made of wood, with metal grummets. Visible German ink stamps: "Geseherbershaus G : 1916" and "A: Flour Coln 1915" . Length of each pole: 38,5 cm/ 15 inches;
>>  a thick tent rope made of natural material, ending with a loop
>>  2 tent pegs made of wood , long 27 cm / 10,6 inches. Both pegs marked with producer's ink stamp "GESEHERB...SHA G  1916" .
>>  canvass holder / pouch with leather straps and metal buckles. One of the buckles is missing as seen on pictures.  On the lid can be noticed the black stamp of the German manufacturer. The lettering says:  "...JX COLN..".  Buttons stamped  "For gentlemen"
 
100% authentic WWI artefact, used also in WWII ! VG+ original condition.
 

Some general information on Zeltbahn tents

The Zeltbahn is a WWI model that was used in WWII, too. It was carried by each German soldier as part of his personal equipment. It was basically a triangular shaped waterproof ‘quarter shelter’. These quarter shelters could be joined together using the metal buttons to make four, eight or sixteen man tents.  At the bottom edge of the zeltbahn there were grommets for threading a drawstring and in each corner there were larger grommets for pegs and at the top, one for a tent pole.  Each man was also issued with a 2 metre tent rope, a section of tent pole (four sections were joined to make a complete pole) and two tent pegs made of resin, steel or aluminium. These items were carried in a small pouch.
