    I bought a mess kit a ways back but it had no cup. A 1960s mess kit has a plastic cup and a 1950s version has a metal cup thus a 1950s version here. When I saw it I just gave it a shake and I knew the cup was there. Now for the step by step.
    #1 kit in carrying case.
    #2 it unfolds to be frying pan and case. Please be sure to temp all food items or get shut down by the health dept. I am a hot dogs on hangers and steak guy myself for campfire cooking. Also spam and beans. Frying a fish not so much.
    #3 reveals all a pot. Perfect for beanie weenies, soup and so on.
    #4 reveals the cup inside the pot.
    Would be fun to take this out camping and whip up a batch of beanie weenies.

      These are great fort, besides the camping fun there are early survivalist lessons

      My parents bought my brother the whole back-pack set up because he wanted to try the scouts in the early 60's. Used it once... decided scouting took too much time away from surfing. We grew up on the beach...

      Thank you very much Newfld. Always helpful.

      Thank you very much Ms.CrystalShip. Alas the surfers can be a bit single minded although seems reasonable living on the beach.

      I don't know why but I just find it funny to say Beenie Weenies XD it's just a funny name

      I have no idea what beanie weenies are so I cannot be sure they are delicious.
      I am sure however that this set would make the right noise in a backpack.

      Ah. Dirty minded are we FP? XD
    11. fortapache fortapache, 2 years ago
      Thank you very much racer4four. It is hot dogs chopped up in baked beans. Brown sugar is the special ingredient. I will whip up a batch using 100 year old graniteware some time.

      McCoyNelson not quite dirty but not all that clean. Chopped something something.

      I had the same kit in the 60's and it came with the metal cup. They took orders for them at meetings or you could order them through boys life magazine.

      Thank you very much fhjrj2. I show pick up a vintage Boy's Life to see the equipment one could order.
