Collection: Vintage Military Mess Tins

Mess tins are a type of two-piece metal cookware that was commonly used by soldiers in the field. The tins consist of a shallow dish and a deeper dish that can be used as a bowl, which fit together for easy storage and transport. Mess tins were a staple of military kit, and were used by soldiers of many countries during the World War periods and beyond.

Mess tins were typically made of aluminum, which made them easy to carry in a small pack. The tins were designed to be durable and withstand the rigors of field use, while also being easy to clean and maintain. They were ideal for cooking meals on a portable stove or over an open flame.
