  1. Great examples, congratulations. These are not easy to come by, let alone in that condition & even Downunder. I have same dated 2004 (mess kit) & 2005 (cup). Cheers, W.S. Outback Australia.

  2. Hey Stickyfingaz, nice video. I am in the Australian military. Along with this gear, we are also issued our Australian copy of the Esbit folding stove which neatly fits two packets of Hexamine tablets. The stove will fit inside the mess kit halves if you want to store it there, but I wouldn't want that gunk inside my eating utensils. Look forward to seeing more of your content. Best wishes.

  3. Great looking set up Amigo.Β  I saw the pan halves, skillets, used in Dak ham review. They performed well! Forgot to pick on the unsteady stove in that one, so will mention now, LOL !Β  I really do love this set up on mess kit!Β  Laid out quite well, with plenty of surface area to cook food. Keep up the great work, Hello to Better half, Peace, [email protected]@@

  4. Beaut looking Mess Kit mate, all you've gotta do now is to crank up the esbit, throw in a few shrimps and bobs your uncle… Big LikeπŸ‘
