WW2 British "Tommy Cooker", Fuel Tins and Enamel Mug - D-Day issue
Reproduction British Tommy Cooker Fuel Containers (Hexamine). These were issed to troops for D-Day along with the stove and 2x "24 Hour assault rations" to use with it. This tin is based on a modern air tight tea caddy type that has a secondary internal lid - ideal to use as a stash for keys, cards, valuables or to store food or stove fuel (do not mix the purposes of the tin for contamination control).
4 versions of the fuel tin were made with different paint colors of the same design. Choose from White or Grey paint or Silver or Gold metalic finishes per your tastes. The tins feature an authentic resealable black tape seal and an internal card liner.
These include an authentic liner / spacer and tape humidity seal.
Of course the full tin is no use without the Tommy Cooker - so we have produced an authentic early design stove in stainless steel to withstand being fired up frequently. Two burner cirlces are included - one sized per the original and another sized to fill the tripod fully for serios heat and stability. The burner circle for the stove was originally shipped inthe top of the fuel tin, while the folding legs fitted into the mess tins along with the 24 hour ration packs.
We also now have an authentic pint sized enamel mug (restaurant supply quality) in white with a blue rim, there were the standard issue to all Commonwealth infantry through WW1, inter war period and upto 1945.
We will attempt to become a distributor for the 24 hour rations kits that are currently on the market to complete this product line and your one stop shopping experience.
