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)
Our Captain Mainwaring marquee is dark green. The basic tent consists of two end roof pieces and one middle section to make a 27′ long marquee. We have extra dark green roof sections to make a 45′ long dark green marquee, fully walled.
We have a further large selection of army marquees with canvases in various shades of khaki green and browns.
