Various Tent Pegs used by German Forces Used in Afrika.

Here is a selection of German tent pegs universally used by German soldiers throughout WW2. Due to wartime shortages and weight there were many types of pegs used by the German military including leftovers from WW1.  I will present a couple of those here first as well as an early war example to show shape of head of standard peg.. Enjoy!   Barron cool

Next are the most common, as they were produced and used throughout the war. There were many manufacturers and methods of marking them.

The following are a couple of examples of the wood or bakelite types that we had displayed earlier under a different thread but later manufacture. This first one is 1940 dated which I just recently acquired.

Re: Various Tent Pegs used by German Forces Used in Afrika.

Hi Barron, is it a myth that in Africa only the ones in bakelite were used?

Re: Various Tent Pegs used by German Forces Used in Afrika.

Good question Chris. So far I have only seen two dates 1940 and 1942 with the same manufacturer. This particular peg did come from eastern Europe. I will definitely keep looking! hmm

Just picked up another group of aluminum D.R.G.M marked tent pegs that I thought I would add to this thread! smile  Barron

Nice. I have only seen the bakelite and aluminum types in straight shape. It's rare to see these ones.

Re: Various Tent Pegs used by German Forces Used in Afrika.

Thanks for the observations and comments guys! The Germans really liked to invent many items that had the same purpose, rather than like the US military that tried to standardize everything and produce huge quantities! Sure makes collecting German items more varied and interesting! big_smile  Barron
