A square shelter half stamped 'D.A.K 1942'.
First DAK stamp I've ever seen.

What an odd thing!? Ignoring "DAK 1942" stamp for the minute it does actually seem German, but clearly not a Zeltbahn! A semicircular drawstring and two arm(?) holes.... I await with interest any kind of explanation as to what it is!

It looks exactly like one of my many postwar Russian raincoats, which were also tents, and blankets, etc. I doubt many things were marked DAK, and I seriously doubt a Soviet army Plash would be sent to Africa with those markings.
