Thanks for lookingThis is a very cool reproduction US Army WWII Officers 'Small Wall' tent. As you can see from the pictures the tent is in used but still very solid condition. The wooden pole frame is very strong and straight. It has all the correct features that you would see on a WWII tent although the end ropes and tie back straps for the end flaps are a synthetic material instead of canvas. However they are dark green and look fine and would be easy enough to swap for older looking ones. I swapped the guy ropes for sizal ones and they look spot on. I've mislaid one end guy rope and just used a length of blue nylon for the photographs... if i find it I'll pop it in although its only an 8 foot length of sizal rope and would be easy to replace. It has the opening end flaps for the tent stove chimney. It has a canvas carry bag wooden pegs and a genuine wooden mallet (military issue but post war). There is a small repair on the side of the tent (see pic) but it is a double sided canvas patch (inside and outside) and is fully waterproof and solid. I'd like to say it was shrapnel damage but was in fact nibbled by a bloody mouse in my garage! The tent overall is very useable and looks fantastic as part of a military encampment or is the perfect period tent for a Jeep Dodge or GMC owner. It sleeps two comfortably and has given me sterling service, however I've sold my Dodge WC so its up for sale. Repros of the small wall are hard to find and look a lot more authentic for WWII than a 12x12 or orange dome tent! The tent is very heavy so collection is advised however I will send courier but be advised it will probably be between £25 - £30. If you have any questions... just ask!!! !
