    The link below is to a .pdf article about the history of US Army field mess gear. Interesting reading with plenty of illustrations. For history buffs, re-enactors and former service personnel wishing to indulge in a little nostalgia for times good and not so good, back in the day.

    I love this kit! Even though I use a stainless pan sometimes, I still prefer this mess set over anything else.

    A bacon can...that's where we've been wrong over all these years. You stop issuing bacon to troops and life just goes downhill.
