The kind that you hammer into the ground for to hold up your tent. Make that shelter-half, because these are from Uncle. Measure 12" long x 1-3/4" wide in a V-shape, in olive drab steel with a 1/4” bore for your rope, and shoulders to wrap the rope around. Marked 97403-132227 E0136 MFR 92398, which is a lotta numbers for a tent stake, but that’s the gummint for you.
Poles 'N' Pegs
But no tent. Or shelter half, as they say in the army, although we don't know whose army these are from. You get a 3-section, 44" tent pole plus (3) steel stakes, all well used and all in an OD camo pouch. Your bivouac partner is supposed to have the other pole and pegs, so maybe he has your half of the pup tent, too.
Our very first two-passenger military-surplus field latrine! Relive those golden moments spent sitting over a slit trench in the woods with a friend. This new (no need to thank us) genuine WWII-era U.S. Army wooden latrine is painted olive drab, weighs 37 lbs, and measures 41" long x 17" x 19-1/2" high. The 18" x 14" flip-up lids are over a pair of toilet-seat-shaped openings above the open bottom. Folds flat for storage and transport. All you add is the trench. We're thinking storage bench/conversation piece for the front hall or mud room. Sorry, Not available for FREE shipping offers. We will contact you with shipping information.
Not actually a mystery--it’s one of (4) olive drab polymer paddle-ish things used to hold up mosquito netting over cots in the military. We’ve got the paddles, but not the stakes or nets, so we recommend creating a new game with these and whiffle balls or shuttlecocks in the woods. Or carry them as emergency canoe paddles for when you’re up a creek, or use them as props in a musical. Or you tell us. Measure 29-3/4" long with a 2-3/8” hole at one end, tapering from 3-3/4” down to 1-1/2” with a 6" dia round at the other end.
