Military tent 18x24ft AESP or other usage documents

The request is waiting for clarification. If you are Martin Twycross, please sign in to send a follow up message.

Dear Ministry of Defence,

A search of your FOI releases shows you have kindly made available (4 Nov 2019) the AESPs, instructions and related documents for the correct use and maintenance of the "12x12" shelter canvas tent and related shelter connectors.

Similar to that enquiry, I have recently purchased an ex-military "18x24" for private use and have been searching for related documentation.

I request a copy of the relevant AESP, handbook/instructions, and any other relevant documents, so that I may use it safely and correctly.

I thank you for your assistance.

Yours faithfully,
Martin

Dear DES SEC-PolSec LE-JSC-WPNS (MULTIUSER),

Thank you for your reply. Having re-read my initial request I can see it is short on detail for you to respond with certainty. Yes, I confirm I am looking for the AESP, or similar other material, covering tent assembly instructions and maintenance for the tent "shelter GS 18x24" - as below.

Given the current sodden weather I am unable to unpack the tentage (then re-store it dry) to confirm the NSN printed by manufacturer JS Franklin on the canvas.

However, I have been able to ascertain this information (below) from JTTP 4-05. NB this may contain a numerical typo error in the 2nd NSN - 891 & 861?

JTTP 4-05 lists:
18 x 24 tent: 8340-99-891-0224
18 x 24 tent c/w porch and insulation: 8340-99-861-0226

This seems to cross-check with the ARRSE web site as J11 8340-99-891-0224 Shelter GS MK2 (18 x 24)

I therefore believe this is the NSN detail you require to progress this request (with the caveat one NSN stocklist web site believes this NSN to be a US issue field jacket!).

As I am retired and no longer have access to the Defence Intranet I am not able to check this URL listed on ARRSE. This may or may not provide some or all of the requested information?

I thank you for your time and attention to this request.

Yours sincerely,
