Bonjour.

 

A whole lot was found during work on the old Pontanazen camp. Place of transit of the troops of the A.E.F. between 1917 and 1919.

Outstanding! Wish had one 25 or more years ago when displaying WWI, and at MTA a few times.

They don't come with a "floor". The fire is build right on the ground.

The CW Sibley stove was different in that the pipe went straight up and out the ring hole in the CW Sibley tent. It also had a little shelf for heating a cup etc. Sibley went with the South, and the US never paid any patent money for the many stoves used in the war and on the frontier.
