WWI US ARMY SHELTER TENT HALF. OD#9.
The fundamental unit of shelter for the U.S. Army in the field — since the Civil War — is the two-man pup tent. Each pup tent is made up of two shelter half pieces that fasten together with a row of buttons (up to late World War II) or snaps along the ridge line and, with poles, ropes and stakes, make up one pup tent. The buttons are matched to a row of button holes. The snaps are two sided. With either system, any pair of shelter half pieces can be fastened together with a watertight closure along the top line. The shelter half is approximately 7′ long by 5′ wide.
