WTK: original wall tent pole design?

Post by wc56daveyboy » Mon Oct 04, 2021 1:19 pm

Does anyone have information, pictures of perhaps, what the design of the ww2 small wall tent uprights /poles originally looked like?

Were they one or two piece?
Hexagonal (like GP tents) or square?
Slip together design?

And the ridge pole?
Was it two piece? Or one piece design?
Slip together or hinged?

Thanks

Davey For the small wall tent
Upright poles;9ft long one piece, hexagonal
Ridge pole 9ft long one piece, oblong with a slight radius curve on the top edge.
Hope that helps you.
