This Poncho was found a few years ago in a barn in the area of Bastogne this was the scene of heavy fighting during the Battle of the Bulge offensive in the winter of 1944-1945 .
The condition reflects being kept in a barn for the past 70 odd years , the fabric has holes where it had been folded and one side had deteriorated over time. The remaining fabric is sound / not fragile. At some point in time all the buttons have been removed.There are several field repairs where German camouflage material has been used to patch adding to the great history of this piece. A very rare relic from the famous battle late on in the war and properly an even rarer SS used item.
