ARMY TENTS

Most military tents consist of 19’6 wide x 9′ roof pieces. Whatever the vintage, they were all made the same, so can be joined together. The old canvas walls have lift up window flaps and wooden side supports within the structure. All the army tent roofs are low, the walls being just 5’6 high. (TBC)

Years of hard work give the army canvases their genuine worn and frayed character. The shades of green vary from pale sand, through to light khaki, darker khaki and olive green. Traditionally these tents have always been erected as a miss match of shades of green which gives them their authentic camouflage look and feel.

Film credits include SAS Rogue Heroes, Life after Life, Outlander, Overlord, World on Fire, Churchill, Close to the Enemy, Their Finest Hour.

Hire prices include erecting and dismantling the marquees.
Transport costs are calculated depending on distance and quantity of items.
