    I had forgotten that. It had a spot of soap inside and was originally for cleaning the canteen cup. The hexamine tablets made the bottom sticky and would cover in crap so you couldn't get heat to...

    Sure, maybe...are you thinking it was made from a #1 butt? Disc hole present so easiest way to fill it is with a disc...?
