    We have a plastic covered garden marquee with a tubular metal frame. 20ft x 10ft. Frame is great but the covering is bl****dy useless in any windy conditions :Angry:. We used it as a workshop in the garden when I needed to pull the engine out of a previous range rover. Might be okay as a kitchen (if it aint windy) but NO GOOD for sleeping cadets.
    hope this helps

    Just a thought Bill can you not bid for stores via Yorkshire ACF for use of 160 pounders and 12x 12 and 9x9 tents and the like...just a thought surely you have a sponsoring unit to help??

    fed at week ends and marched around i know their is more but thay have the biggest smiles on there faces when thay as teem achieve any thing just today
