I've made up some Plash ropes.
They are 20cm longer than the original on each side of the knot.
This is not because the original are judged to be too short, obviously they are perfect, but to cope with sub ideal western tent pegs that may be encountered and uneven ground/over fat trees etc.
I have 4 made up in a nice rough sisal rope with the end whipped for easy threading, the next batch will be slightly more refined as production ramps up to meet those 'norms' Victor speaks of.
If you want one pm an address and I'll post one off if you live in the UK.
Dont ask for 2 or 3 or all 4. You'll get one.
More will be made if the need is there.
Yes, they are free in the UK.
Its just string/rope.

Comrade LeMaitre, Your work conforms to the laid down Norm, you are reserving Admiring Glances from Moscow Centre.

It truly is a workers paradise where such things are free?
I plan to make some more today, they will be hemp rather than sisal though, not as rough looking.

Comrade LeMaitre, Improvements to the Efficiency of these Complexes is in line with scientific Marxist Leninism.

No more until December, going away with work.
It is disappointing to say that the Germans have had a greater take up of their free string than the Soviets.
Their combat readiness will be greater or their sleep will be deeper?

Comrade LeMaitre,
It is because as part of a Centrally Controlled Command Society we want for little, also the paperwork is still being processed, except a mass demand on the afternoon of 4th November 2023.
