    They are a great to sleep on. I used one for many years.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I'd try it as it sure beats sleeping on the floor!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Very cool cot. We've come across several but are either missing the end poles or material is in such dis-repair that we've passed on each one....but we are still looking! Growing up we have a couple of these, Viet-Nam era I am sure, that we took camping for me and my sister to sleep on..also had the 6 foot long air mattress my dad always refered to as a "rubber lady"

    I slept on it last night as opposed to my air mattress. It was actually really comfortable!

    Were these used in the field or only in barracks?

    I personally do not know however, I see re-entactors camps with them being used all the time. I guess I could call my dad and ask, he is a WWII vet that was stations in China near the end and post war....I'm sure they had tent like accomodations while there.
