Shelter half, blanket, pegs and pole


Recommended Posts

I have two of these and want to make sure the components are all WW2. I got them from a vet who bought them (decades ago) because he wanted all the kit he had during the war. 

And any idea on a good sale price for the whole set? I don't know if this stuff is usually sold piecemeal or like this. 


The blankets are unmarked. 

One of the shelter half is marked, but faintly. I can't find a marking on the other. 

Both tent pole are marked. This one appears to be 1942.

They look WW2 to me. The single ended shelter was manufactured up to 1943. Since yours is single ended and has the flat buttons I would assume WW2 around 1942 manufacture. The folding pole was also made up to 1943 I believe. The army adopted the three piece pole in 1944. The blanket is tougher to guess without a tag. It looks like the early WW2 color though.

Thank you. 

Any idea as to how much a set like this might be worth at a fair price?
