Probably about halfway in putting together a large Swiss tent. Officially, there weren't any standard large tent frames, so the army improvised with wooden posts, planks, zeltpoles doubled up etc.


On another subject....... A combination of Touring Club Schweiz and Motorwagendienst, founded in 1936, provided a volunteer driver/car force, for military emergencies.

Wimpole 2017 Wehrhafte Schweiz. Hopefully, when enough zeltplaches have been emassed, they will go over the existing frame. Update January 2018. In order to cover a standard 12' x 12' army frame, it takes 3 rows of 5 standard retangular Splittertarn/canvas Zeltplachen(Bahnen) , to cover the span 6', 6', 6', 6', 6' x 12'. Not including front and back covers. You could probably hide/garage a Stug under that, especially as there are no horizontal gables across the ends. Last three Zelts en route from Canada.
