MKVII Brown ground sheet/cape was issued from 1917 to the 1940s
The British army soldier carried this waterproof ground sheet with him in the field and could be used as a:
Waterproof ground sheet
Shelter to keep you dry
Cape by buttoning up the front
There are 18 holes punched along the circumference of the ground sheet, it measures 190cms x 85cms plus extra collar wrap over flap. There are 4 buttons down the front and the centre of the back is slightly hollowed to allow for a small pack to be worn.
Our new ground sheet has been specially made using the original method of doubled sided rubberised fabric which is then bonded together and is completely waterproof.
Issued to soldiers to keep them dry it was carried on the outside of small pack when not worn. The MKVII cape buttons up the front and has a large collar to keep the water out. You can also make a shelter to keep you dry in the field.
