Item received as described, was a bit oily from use but cleaned up just fine. Great condition for being stored over 70 years

British WWII Mess Kit (2016-02-17)
I received my British WWII mess kit today. I am very pleased with this product. I had read previous views on this product and almost all mentioned the packing lubricant, so I was prepared. Mine is like the one pictured, marked MMS 1945. I will definitely keep WPG in mind for future products. Great shipping as well.

Again prompt service (2014-08-26)
The mess tins I recieved were in good serviceable condition as they will be used frequently, but mine had a bonus a soldiers name and outfit stamped into it . Though I would have preferred one unmarked , this one has a little more history than just a date . It's going to be interesting to research the man

aluminum mess tin (2014-08-07)
Fast shipping. Product is very nice, with few if any dings or dents. Some minor cleaning and it is good to go. Both tins dated '45, and from the same manufacturer, just as advertised. Highly recommend this product

Great item, well dates 1945! Perfect for reenacting

Jim A (2013-08-16)

Received the tins and they were very nice. A little dirty/covered in grease but cleaned up with oven cleaner. Now they look brand new. They are 1945 dated and both halves have the same contractor mark and the "broad arrow" inspection mark. They had a few small dents, but being made out of aluminum. I hammered them out pretty easily.

Great item, dated 1945, the only thing you need to do is to clean them from technical oil and it'll be like new.

Mess Tins (2012-12-31)
Expect to clean these up when you receive them. They've been in storage since 1945 or so. A little "Krud Cutter" (shameless plug) and elbow grease and you have a top quality mess kit. Thanks for providing a great product WPG.

British Mess Kit (2012-09-25)
My own particular brand of militaria collecting mental illness runs towards trying to collect every nation''s mess kit. So naturally I had to get the iconic British mess tin set. What Price Glory has the best price around, and I was able to get a mess kit marked "1945 MSS". After I got the protective grease off, the kit looks brand new. There is a small hole in the big pot, that leaks water rather fast. But I think a few taps with a ball peen hammer will close the hole well enough to use. Great mess kit, I cannot wait to use it camping/hiking.

A bit messy but you get what you pay for. (2012-09-23)
It's very good mines dated 1945, once you've cleaned it well.

All you need is some boiling water with washing up liquid and bleach. A good scrub and its good to go!

45 Dated British mess kit (2009-11-04)
As advertised. Nice dated mess kit. A heads up... these things are pretty well preserved in cosmoline. My inside half was coated in about a 1/4 inch of gritty dirty grease. No big deal. Just like to be thorough with my reviews. Excellent

Great! (2008-03-11)
Though packed in some sort of grease, they are in great condition and well worth the price. It will just take a little scrubing with CLR to get them eatable/cookable.
