These are original WWII-era Swiss Military issued tent pole sets. Each set comes with one three piece wooden tent pole, with three galvanized steel tent stakes. Fully assembled the pole measures approximately 45 inches. The complete set stores in its original canvas pouch which is dated from the original time of issue and marked with the department who received it. With each set being over 60 years old, you'll find no two are exactly alike, yet you will find all of them to be fully functional and unique pieces of Swiss military history. Each soldier would be issued one of these sets with their shelter half.
