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...
