Re: telo tenda mod. 29 coloniale

yes, but it is definitely a WWII production because no tropical equipment, except pith helmet, were produced after war. Besides all original wartime shelter have sewn corner grommets while post-war have metal corner grommets, also, original wartime shelter have brown bakelite buttons and are sewn down while post-war shelter usually have brown metal buttons that are riveted instead of sewn.
