I was at a garage sale a few years ago and saw an old flour sack from a local mill and even better the sack was also made locally so I asked the guy what was up with the old flour sack. He said "Oh that's just my dad's old army tent. You can have it for $15" needless to say I didn't even look at the tent because I figured coming out of a basement or utility shed it would be ruined from mold and mildew. But I was willing to pay the money for the sack. I got it home and one thing led to another I put the whole thing in a cedar trunk o use for storage. Fast forward 2 years I'm getting ready to move. I dump the flour sack out and I'm floored because "dad's old army tent" is in pristine condition the ropes aren't even warn. I found out it was made by the same company that made the flour sack. I was wondering about a possible date. The only thing I can find for a date is if it is a civilian tent it was made before 1935. I can't find a way to date it if is a military tent. Can anybody point me in the right direction to date it?
