The Small Wall Tent was introduced in 1941. Used for shelter of TWO Officers, when in the field and not in combat. When necessary, this Tent may also be used as a small storage tent The Tent is 8 feet 10 inches wide, 9 feet 2 inches long, and 8 feet 6 inches high. The floor covers approximately 80 square feet. The Small Wall Tent is an A-type, square-ended tent, rectangular in shape. All elements, such as top, side walls and reinforcements are made of 12.29 ounce duck while the sod cloth is made of 9.85 ounce duck. The ridge height is 8 feet 6 inches, while the wall height is 3 feet 9 inches, giving a pitch of 4 feet 9 inches. Each end section has an overlapping slit forming a door, while stovepipe openings are provided at either end of the tent. Ventilation is done by rolling up the side walls, and opening slits. When not in use, stovepipe openings may be used as ventilators.

Pitching:

a. Preliminary Arrangements:

The officer or non-commissioned officer in charge selects suitable ground. He indicates the direction in which the tent is to face, the line on which the tent is to be placed and the position of the door pin. It requires approximately 20 minutes for four men to pitch the Large and Small Wall Tents.

b. Procedure:

(1) Drive a pin to mark the center of the door.

(2) Spread the tent on the ground it is to occupy, placing the door foot stops over the door pin.

(3) Draw the front corners taut, align and pin down.

(4) Lace the rear door.

(5) Draw the rear corners taut in both directions and pin down.

(6) Drive the four eave line pines on each corner in prolongation of the diagonals of the tent and about two paces beyond the corner pins.

(7) Loosen the front door.

(8 ) Loosen the two corner foot stops from the corner pins on one side only.

(9) Insert the ridge pole between the ventilation strip and the tent ridge.

(10) Insert the spindle of the upright poles in the ridge pole and in the grommets of the tnet.

(11) Raise the tent and hold it in position.

(12) Replace the two loosened corner foot stops and secure and tighten the guy lines to hold the poles vertical.

(13) Drive the wall pins through the foot stops as they hang, and finally, drive intermediate eave-line pins in alignment with the eave-line pins already driven.

Striking:

a. Remove all pins, except those of the four eave lines on the corners and the corner wall pins on the down-wind side, and place them in a receptacle.

b. Have the men unfasten the guy lines and hold them while the tent is being lowered.

c. Lower the tent down wind.

d. Remove the poles and remaining corner wall pins. Fasten the poles together and collect the remaining pins.

Folding:

a. Spread the tent flat on the ground, folded at the ridge so that the bottoms of the side walls are even, the sod cloth folded under., and the ends of the tent forming triangles to the right and left.

b. Fold in the bottom of the wall approximately one foot.

c. Fold the triagnular ends of the tent in toward the middle to form a rectangle.

d. Fold the top over about 9 inches.

e. Fold the tent again by carrying the top fold over to the foot, and again from the top to the door.

f. Throw all the eave and guy lines onto the tent except the second eave line from each end.

g. Fold the ends in so as to cover about two-thirds of the width of the second panel.

h. Double the left fold over the number of times required to bring the resulting bundle into position 3 to 5 inches from the right fold.

i. Place the right fold in position on top completing the bundle.

j. Tie the bundle with the two exposed eave lines.
