Find yourself a fork and you'll be ready for any meal with this military mess kit!

Discovered in a storage locker, inside of a USMC Alice pack, this stainless steel kit appears to have been cobbled together from various other mess kits. The military has been using a similar design kit for years so despite being mismatched, this kit still fits together well!

The kit consists of:
1 frying pan marked 1965
1 two compartment dish
1 knife marked 1945
1 shiny spoon marked US (no date, appears to be newest component)

Great for camping or picnics, this kit folds down into one convenient package. The cutlery simply fits inside the frying pan, the dish acts as the lid, and the handle of the frying pan folds over to keep it all together- ingenious! See picture #2 for assembled kit.

When assembled, the kit measures:
9" x 7" x 2.5"

When unfolded, the frying pan measures 16.25" including handle.

Condition: This kit has its share of bumps and scratches but no holes or punctures- it still holds water! The frying pan has the most damage, see photos.
