British and Empire Tents and Shelters of the Great War

Recommended Posts

With reference to various girl guide and scout group bell tents. A collector in Canberra acquired several a few years back and has supplied them to re-enactors. The key feature is that these were relatively small, about a 2,1m radius. and looked very much like the ones in post 14. Very similar in impression to the military tent but much smaller. Unfortunately not military surplus.

Cheers

Hi, during the Great War, what did American troops generally sleep on. In particular, I talking about the embarkment camp set up in Norfolk, Virginia in February 1918 from where American servicemen were shipped to fight in WW1 in France.

 

For example, was it on the floor? On what? Or were some kind of bed frame provided? Any idea what the tents were like? How many soldiers did they house? And what shape were they? 

 

I've found this one very small photograph, which I attach.

 

Any help gratefully received.
