H019778 FOUR M1901 TENT POLES. (Drei Zeltstock)

BACKGROUND: The M31 Zeltbahn, (Model {19}31 Tent Width/Ground Sheet), was a standard issue item for all EM/NCO personnel and besides itís 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 Zeltbahnen forming a four man tent. Normally these tenting accessories would be carried in the individualís backpack or rucksack although there was a specially designed carrying bag for these items that was issued on a limited basis. The tent accessory carrying bag was introduced to prevent wear and tear on other items by the sharp points on the tent pegs and was based on the pattern of a similar bag utilized during WWI.
