Update on my Kochgeschirr Collection


Recommended Posts

Very nice and all very well, but you cannot beat a wedgewood porcelain if you need a really good cup of tea!

However for my education what is the standard sop kit list for a German soldier's "eating" arrangements? Could you photo Eric a set x one for what the chap would have in the field?

If not too much trouble,

Mark,

I think you pretty much have it in that photo of Eric's. All you got was a mess kit, a spork, a cup and canteen. A salt bag was issued as well as a coffee tin. That was about it. Everything else came via meals-on-wheels or iron rations.

Thanks for the number Chip only thing I've found is a Axis Forum thread from 10yrs ago no pics unfortunately. I wonder what they used for a handle maybe something akin to the '87 cool kit I like the backpack also.

Cheers

The name is "Bumgardt". Can you read the factory town location? It looks like the last part of it is "a.RH." (am Rhein).

Personally, I've never heard of a "cavalry" model mess kit. There's nothing mentioned in Kraus, if that makes any difference. The Brits had a separate cavalry pattern mess kit. Perhaps that is what the Frenchies were thinking of? This round one would certainly not fit into a standard cavalry Kockgeschirrtasche.

courtesy of the French forum (I hope I don't get in trouble borrowing the picture), a relic bottom I may have seen something in a colour lithrograph image pre 1900 but don't remember completely, on a gun crew wearing zelt's ala bandoleer.
