Camp table and Chairs Millionaires
« on: August 05, 2018, 11:27:12 PM »
Picked up these "Chairs millionaires" and table at this weekend's 'Rocky Swap'. The chap was actually using them, and they weren't up for sale. I bought a Series 2 tool roll from him and noticed the chairs. After a bit of haggling, they were mine (you don't ask, you don't get). The table is apparently ex ADF as well. Does anyone here have any photos of them, in particular the opening instructions stencil underneath, as I want to return it to its original condition

Thanks Mick, it's a rather large stencil isn't it. No excuses for getting it wrong. Do you know the age and any history of these tables? Cheers

Hi Mike,

I don't know when they first saw service but I know they have been around at least 40 years 🤔

I'm sure some of our Vietnam era vets could give us more idea ?

Cheers,

Mick
