Shelter Half for sale

Post  samharris45 on Wed Oct 21, 2009 12:39 pm

I thought I would offer this out to the group before I went elsewhere as itís now surplus to my requirements.

1x Shelter Half (so not a full tent), itís original and 1945 dated. The Shelter Half was made by Cleveland Overall. The date/maker stamp is still in good condition and viable as is the U.S. marking.

I have used this half with another to make a tent (in the rain) and can confirm itís still waterproof. Or was I too drunk to notice?

Itís the later war type as it has flaps at each end to close up. It has buttons NOT poppers.

Some of the ropes used to peg this down are missing and some attention may be needed as itís getting slightly tatty now.

There are no major rips or tears.

If youíre interested let me know. Looking for £25 for it. I think thatís reasonable looking at what some go for but if you think not then let me know!

I can bring it down to the AGM for anyone who wants to view it.

Cheers

Sam

I have four halves like the one described, I only use them to fill packs now (I have 4 tan ones that I use), if anyone wants one I would be happy to sell.
