    Default Post war tent camouflage ?

    Morning Men,
    I picked this up this morning thinking it was a bedroll but now I am sure it is a tent side/door. It looks to be for the British Army made in 1962 by W.S. (P) ltd and has the number ADO 473.
    At the top it has hooks, at the bottom it has a sod cloth and peg loops. Either side it has brass eyelets. The window seems to of been filled in and the curtain left in place which threw me to start with.

    What type of camouflage is this though as it is not something I have seen before ?

    Its a clever bit of lateral thinking to do that.

    Thanks for that, I have also now found this post on here as well.

    Mine still seems to be slightly different in that it is just a door or side curtain so must be from a larger tent.
    Nice to know it may have some history though.

    just found this too from the same poster

    Looks like a similar camo as some of the scrim nets of that era!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I've put up some of those big pole marquees before and I'm pretty sure it's a side panel from one of them.

    I should of checked my own books first. This page is from David Gordon's Equipment of the ww2 Tommy. The windows look a good match to the picture.

    I picked up this folding stool which has the same camo sleeve. Possibly home made.
