Period British bell back Wedge Tents
 
British Bell Back Wedge Tent - 6' X 6' X 7'
    Other than the kit to use on a daily basis for this hobby a tent is one of the most important items which must be acquired. There is nothing better than being able to stay out for the night and enjoy the entire weekend as a group. Tentage however is limited to the number available, those in need, the number available by members not using them and those who are willing to relocate themselves to offer up space.
     The tent is one of the more expensive items of purchase but one of the most necessary. 
     Tentsmith tents are the preferred tent as they are the best available. Order your tent as soon as possible, it takes time to ship and put together. Tents from Tentsmiths are approximately $375 Canadian which includes, mud flaps, shipping and duty.
     A cheaper alternative is a tent made locally by Ken Fisher of the HMS Charwell gun crew. Quality is not as good as Tentsmith tents but for those on a strict of limited budget it is an affordable alternative. Currently his tents run about $190 with poles included.
