1945 WWII Mess Kit, Soldier's World War II Kit

15.99

This mess kit is dated 1945, the final year of World War II. The top piece of the kit is divided into two sections and it sits on top of a "bowl" of equal size with an attached latch that fits the two together. The initials R.C. are scratched into the bottom of the mess kit and would likely have been those of the original owner who used it during the war. The son of the original owner informed me he used to make scrambled eggs as a kid in his dad's mess kit. The label in the center of the latch is marked "U.S. / A.G.M. CO. / 1945"
