Where them camouflaged at the frontline or where they camouflaged in the factory like the Zeltbahn? So far I've seen only camouflaged Stafftents.

The tan colour is not the nicest colour
Not that clued up on tents but i did look at buying an original camo staff tent a few years ago.
Also the other company in america sell 4 different colours of staff tent.
Does anyone have the isbn for the horst heinrichsen tent book as i want to get myself a copy
thanks
matt

Guys before I go any further with the staff tent - now is a GOOD time to let me know (if we can all decide :o ) what colour you want....

Best wishes,

Jack.

Hi Jack,

please take a look at this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=53&t=15086

I'd only choose a colour which is historically correct, so
(if I am correct) it's either

tan (various shades) or light grey

I personally would prefer a little darker variation of the tan colour,
or (my favourite) the same colour as this Gebirgstruppenzelt:

Servus Jack und Zeltkameraden,

I think the light olive color is very typical for most German tents and canvas items (Gebirgsjäger Rucksack, etc.) or a natural linen color would be the best choice overall.

Of course the two- or three-tone camo pattern is very nice also, but I'm sure more expensive to have done:

Horrido!

Tent poles for that tent are original. They are sectional aluminium 3 for the main uprights, 2 at each corner.

hi jack
sorry to throw a spanner in the works over tent colours, just thought there must have been other colours as the tan would not have been very camouflaged in a lot of europe.
Im waiting on the zelt book coming then maybe that will cast some more light on the subject!!

No it doesn't I'm afraid (I have a copy). I've got a number (now 9) of original staff tents, dated from 1938 through to 1944 and they are all tan (not brown) of varying shades. The earlier ones have the Reichsheer camo scheme on them, but the later ones are a plain tan colour. Some people have alluded to them being made in gray and green, but any evidence to support this isn't forthcoming at present.
