Hello, i would like to share some pics of my kitchen tent. It's dated 1965 and has not been used before.
Bought it for my collection and for burger roast in befitting atmosphere 😁
Usable from Vietnam to Woodland-era.

M1937 range, built in license from german manufacturer, with a teleflex mbu. For me it's safer than the older M2 burner...

It sure does.  The smell of those things is like no other.  It doesn't matter how long they are up and aired out...they always have that smell.

Great Setup! Love the tent! I have one, too! Pain in the rear to set up but great design! You have the complete wood poles? Also the rare middle one that goes to the front?

Hi, yes the tent comes with the complete set of poles, dated from '65 to '68. Some were still wrapped in steel tape and one has the marking "Orthopedic Equipment Co". Amazing what companies have made for the military.

And with 3 persons built up the roof poles is... easier 😊

Lars
