I just ran into this thread whilst searching up bell tents.
I am from Canvas and Cast
and we make Bell Tents
in the Traditional Style... No plastic guy ropes or sliders, a Canvas ground sheet (if you go for the luxury grouns sheet), and heavy 350g Canvas for the actual manufacture of the Bell Tent
My question to you guys is : Is our tent historically correct in relation to what you are using in Historical Recreations of Campaigns? It would be really good for us to be able to add this fact to our website! How can we work out if this is so?
hope to hear back from you soon...
