Thx Neil, nice stuff ;-) Aluminum poles?
Wooden poles. I don't know the exact material used for the ground stakes if that is what you mean. They were made of various materials. NH
Yeah, I meant the ground stakes. Aluminum would be much lighter than steel, and of course non magnetic?
Black rope is "official" but I have also seen undyed examples like that used in the pegs.
Pegs can be found in wood, bakelite, aluminum, painted steel and stamped bare steel late in the war.

Pegs were made from aluminium, painted steel and bakelite...
