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

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.

Boiler controversy. I've had an email from a gent the 1887 was complete oval. They didn't have a concave back until the pattern 1893 is this correct?

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
