H011568 THREE, M1929 TENT PEGS. (Drei Zeltpflock)

BACKGROUND: The M31 Zeltbahn, (Model 1931 Tent Width/Ground Sheet), was a standard issue item for all EM/NCO personnel and besides it’s basic use as a protective rain poncho it came accompanied with tenting accessories that consisted of the M1892 tent rope, the three piece M1901 breakdown tent pole and two, M1929, tent pegs enabling the individual to utilize his Quarter shelter with others to form assorted sized tents. The easiest and most common tent usage was four conjoined Zeltbahn forming a four man tent. Normally the tenting accessories would be carried in the individual’s backpack or rucksack although there was a specially designed carrying bag for these items that was issued on a limited basis. The early issue tent pegs were constructed of metal or metal alloy’s while later production tent pegs were generally manufactured in molded bakelite, plastic impregnated wood or plain wood.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Three later issue M1929 pattern, dark, reddish/brown, plastic impregnated, lathed, wooden construction tent pegs. The tent pegs feature a bulbous headpiece and subtle, vertical, indentations to all four sides. The bulbous headpieces each have a central, drilled, hole to accommodate a guide rope. All three twisted, knotted, natural tan, guide ropes are included. The headpieces of all three of the tent pegs are well marked with the matching, embossed, manufacturer’s initials within circular recesses, "GS", to one side and the matching, embossed, date within a circular recess, "42". Nice Zeltbahn accessories.
