    Czechoslovak pre-war quartershelter?

    Post by henrik_clausen on Sun Jul 07, 2013 5:44 am

    Hi,

    Could you please help me identify this item? http://www.ebay.de/itm/Zeltbahn-Zeltplane-1-oder-2-WK-/141002814975?

    I think it might be Czechoslovak (it shares some characteristics with post-war Czechoslovak "Swamp" quartershelters), but I'm not sure. The stamp is very hard to read (BTW it looks like being turned 180 degrees on the photos)

    Thank you for your help!

    Best regards
    Henrik

    Hi Henrik

    Hmmm. I have no idea what a pre-war Czech shelter half might look like. However, I thought the post-war Czech shelter half (square) was based on the Soviet wartime design? That stamp is illegible to me, but it's the sort of thing I would expect to find on a Soviet piece. Maybe Soviet?

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you!

    After reading http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/showthread.php?p=5192089 this I'm also convinced that it is an early Soviet quarter shelter. The grommets in the corners are reinforced with leather on one side (my square Czechoslovak "swamp" quarter shelter has it on both sides).

    I've tried to interpret the stamp, and it might very well be written in Cyrillic.

    All the best!

    Sweet! I like educated guess which prove to me that all my reading and what not has a purpose. Even if trivial Wink

    Hi,

    BTW - does the rhombe-shaped Czechoslavak shelts resemble pre-war Czechoslovak shelters? Or is there another explanation why they were both producing square and rhombe shaped shelters in the 1950ies?

    All the best!
