    Default Parachute section, real???

    Hey guys,found this locally.....it's a section of silk from a parachute cut into a diamond, It measures approximately 49"x45"x40"x30". It's tan, brown, and green. The seller said that he got it from a vets family and that the vet would send home souvenirs wrapped in the chute sections. This is a absolutely not my collecting focus, so any help is greatly appreciated! On a side note, it smells wicked old! Thank you!

    Very Cool and much larger than what we usually see...If I was a Fallschirmjaeger-collector this would make a perfect backdrop for my display...I hope the price is right...
    cheers, Glenn

    How can I tell if this is a FJ chute piece or a cargo chute piece?

    No idea on that one, sorry. I don't know German 'chute sizes.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Would the camo pattern and colors be the same for either use?

    An opportunity for research has now presented itself to you...For me- the studying, searching, and learning are the most enjoyable aspects of this hobby...

    Hello,
    IMO camouflaged canopies were used for personnel only, and unicolor canopies for equipments and weapons...
    Thanks
