    Interesting Thermal can. I did a little research the AeroVoiD Company became the Vacuum Can company and did have a US military contract in 1984. The contract number is DLA400-81-c-3034. So the US military did use them. But as i remember the Mess Section just threw a #10 Can of coffee into a boiling 30 gallon pot of water. I am still trying to get the grinds out of teeth. So long ago. What winter fun in Graf.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    Jim I missed the spigot, the ones I remember were dumped straight from the mouth...

    You'd be surprised, we had lots of it. I guess it was purchased through the system and just brought straight in. M37 truck, M135 truck, some of our tentage, our mountain stove M'51, Lots of our kitchen equipment...our M1919.30 cal, 106RR, .50M2...all the equipment pertaining to them and originally the publications...

    I remember those times too, a large pot on an M37 burner and lined up in the field at first light for tactical feeding. Two hard boiled eggs, two toast, bacon to go and a canteen cup full of black coffee. Step on...rifle slung...next man...
    Regards, Jim
