H052180 SPLINTERPATTERN CAMOUFLAGE CAPE.

BACKGROUND: The development of camouflage clothing and equipment had began in the German army in WWI, and continued through the Weimar Reichswehr era. The geometric splinter pattern was developed in the early 1930's and was first adopted for use with the M31quarter shelter/poncho in late 1931. Further developments modified the original splinter pattern by softly blurring the distinct geometric pattern and slightly altering the coloration. This modified camouflage pattern was designated the Tan/water camouflage and was once again altered by an even stronger blurring of the distinct geometric pattern during the war.

PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Field made camouflage cape from zeltbahn splinter pattern material. Three button front neck closure with a collar also in splinter pattern material. Few small repairs. Shows the expected period use and wear but overall nice condition.
