Army Pup Tent Grade 2 - U.S.A.
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 ridgeline and, with poles, ropes and stakes, make up one pup tent. The buttons are matched to a row of buttonholes. 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
