Just wondering how many "Germans" have got Zeltbahn or shelter quarters, and if they would like to try and set up some Zeltbahn tents, I've got two myself one wehrmacht and one ss, but I've never tried making a tent with them, I think you need four in total plus two sets of Zeltbesteck, or pegs and poles, which come in a set of three, three pegs and three pieces that make up a pole in a small carrying case. If anyone is interested in this I'll post a photo of the poles/pegs so you know what I'm on about. Some of these tents would look quite good in our HQ area.

Yeah, I'm taking the SS Zelt collection along.

To put up a 4 Zelt tent you need:

4 x Zelts (duh, obviously)
4 x Pole sections
8 x Pegs
1 x Helmet. To pop over the end of the pole that sticks through the top of the zelt pyramid, to stop rainwater running into the tent. :)

I'm after an assault A frame to finish of my gear and I might get another Zeltbahn while I'm on, just so we can have a tent to kip in for the next big event, better than a modern nylon one.

Excuse my ignorance - how big are these, and are they practical? Is there any other type of period rucksack that anyone would recommend?

You must bring a water bottle with you that you can carry at all time. There is no water on site, and large jerry cans will be provided at strategic points and bases for players to fill up at .


As long as they don't stink of petrol.... :wink:
