    I think the warm climate may have helped. Nice item to have.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thankyou, I was surprised to find one, but like I said when I first got it, it was impossible to unfold so i left it for a year....Like Ade has already said, maybe the warmer climate helped it. There has been some question about the markings? I have seen wartime examples, in photos, with similar markings. Litzmann says he doesnt like them, and I appreciate his input, can anyone elaborate on this???

    By the way, it looks in a lot better condition in the pics, it is stained, has a fe holes at the folds and is still very brittle.
