    Now that's a nice find!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks paul im really fond of this camo and know what you mean mate these are so hard to track down in the uk ,the holdall bag/hood has been deliberately stitched with the belt loops on the reverse side on one ,i cant find any maker stamps as yet but perhaps its just hard to see amongst the pattern

    A really interesting camo design as really there are two patterns on each side, an amoeba and splinter pattern combined!...

    Both sides are amoeba pattern... reversible Summer/Autumn, both are the same just different colours...........
    These are now getting hard to find, many are being cut up and being made into caps (which never existed!) and helmet covers by unscrupulous dealers ! these zelts are great early examples of BW equipment to have in a collection, well done to find two James !
    By the way, no splinter pattern zelts were made available to the BW, only a similar pattern to the BGS....olive and Flecktarn zelts were used in the 60's through to now.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Many thanks steve i wonder if it was a common part of the kit to be issued both pattern holdalls in the autumn and summer shades ,i remember your mint example catching my eye on your superb bundeswehr panzergrenadier display ,are there any referance pictures out there i can view showing how the holdall would be placed on the belt or webbing i managed to pick this pair up locally here in wales but have seen a couple on ebay germany ,another question ,are they usually maker and date stamped as i just cant see any on mine ,i recently picked up a 1956 belgium zelt in the moons and balls brushstroke and was surprised to see a german maker ,apparently it was common post war due to the reparations imposed on germanyClick image for larger version.

    James, like the tent pole bag the zelt bag was kept out of sight inside the rucksack and never on the belt or indeed outside of the backpack, the zelt itself could either be carried rolled in a "horse shoe" shape or rolled up on the small battle bag much as in Imperial/WH times..............Schusters "1955-2010" BW uniforms & equipment book shows this, well worth getting as a reference book....
    Prost ! Steve.
