Armbruster WWII Shelter Halves

During WWII Armbruster Manufacturing Company made tens of thousands of WWII canvas shelter halves to support the war effort. Many of these are still in existence today and can be found on ebay for around $100 each. We have a few remaining original 1942 dated shelter halves which show the OD#3 colored canvas used during the war. The War Department at the time shipped the canvas, grommets, thread, and rope to tent suppliers like ourselves and we manufactured the tents to specifications provided. Government inspectors would often visit and walk through our plants to inspect outgoing shipments to the Quartermaster Depots. Photo inside an Armbruster plant sewing up tents for the War effort...

WWII Canvas 1934 Pyramidal Tents from the Tri-State Living History Association

Recently the Tri-State Living History Association was generous enough to loan two original WWII canvas 1934 Pyramidal Tents for Armbruster to reference. Armbruster is now building these tents again just like we did during the 1940s. Eric "Tab" Taubery, the President of the Tri-State Living History Association contacted us to donate the use of his organization's two tents to referene in the construction of our "new" made versions. We are now comparing these tents against our original construction files to ensure our versions we manufacture now match the originals. The shape of these two original tents is amazing. Both built in 1940, these tents are 70 years old and still going! One is an early war USMC khaki version, and the other is a mid war Army contract version. Slight...
