Please do, I've been rather curious about it and other british mess items.
With being holiday this week I've some time to follow up on my previous posting from earlier in the year, apologies to all for being a little late.
Pouch, Utility, DPM, manufactured by "Web Tex", front and rear view, rear view showing attachment to equipment.
Contents of the Pouch, 1 set of "Brit" Nato mess tins, 1 "Brit" Hexi cooker.
"Hexi" cooker, in open position, full packet of burner tablets contained, not to be used all at once , complete with "Drinking Mug Stand".
"Hexi" cooker fitted with Drinking Mug Stand". If I remember correctly, our friend Housil queried if there was a special vessel used, this is it, from my BCB Crusader set.
You will notice that the stand is "D" or "Kidney" shaped for anything placed in it, the "Mug, Drinking" fits perfectly into it. On the left hand side of the Mug, you will see tape, Duct, Gorilla or Gaffer tape. We use it so we don't burn our lips on a hot vessel.
Stamped with a NSN number, made by BCB Crusader, also stamped with the British MOD "Crows foot".
Boiling, cooking vessel, with Duct tape applied.
Contents of my mess tins, it doe's vary from time to time.
Top, left to right, dish cloth, good for wiping the mess tins clean, also for holding the handles when hot. Please note, these mess tins are original Brit gear, chrome handles, scouring pad.
Centre, Inner mess tin with from left to right, washing up liquid, frying oil, soy sauce and tissues, "Kleenex". Then knife, fork, spoon and a small teaspoon.
Bottom, Outer mess tin with five Nescafe 3 in 1 coffees, coffee, milk and sugar, pre mixed. To the right, six sheets of "tin foil", kitchen aluminium foil, placed on the underside of the mess tins and boiling vessels so as not to stain them with the "Hexi" gung, together with matches, lighter, can opener and cigarette papers, sorry guys.
To be continued later. hope you have enjoyed the photos of my gear up to now, will post more and continue later.
