Armbruster displays WWII Tents at Rockford WWII Days
Armbruster Tentmaker displayed our reproduction World War II canvas tents during the Rockford World War II Days held on September 23-26, 2010, in Midway Village, Rockford, Illinois. The 10th Mountain Division, 87th Mountain Infantry Regiment (Reenacted) displayed the latest models of World War II specification tents in their camp. Tents displayed this year were the 1942 Command Tent, Wall Tent, Small and Wall Tent, Large as well as a Small Fly. The 1942 Command Tent was a huge hit. It offered re-enactors a spacious interior with room enough for two cots, two desks and trunks and windows that rolled up for ventilation. The tents weathered a large storm the first night and didn’t leak a bit.
Armbruster manufactured these tents during World War II and now offers them again built to the same specification as we did during World War II.
