You are bidding on a RARE example of a WW2 German Wehrmacht / Luftwaffe M31 Mess Kit! The VERY INTERESTING feature is that some parts are of French origin, indicating it was made in occupied France.
The M31 mess kit was originally introduced in March 1931, and was based on the earlier M1910 design of WW1. It was slightly smaller and was constructed in 2 parts, with a small removable shallow top lid. This lid served as plate or frying pan. Originally they were made in aluminum, but were changed to steel as the war progressed to save on materials. It normally came with a leather strap to secure it to the bread bag.
Made of aluminum and steel, this mess kit is in EXCELLENT used condition! It retains approx. 90% of it’s original paint and finish, with various marks, scratches, dents, and wear throughout. No manufacture markings that I can see. It is clear to be WW2 German origin…but has a hinge from a French-made Mess Kit where the carry-handle attaches. Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display!
