    Very nice, the early war dated examples of British kit is the most desirable IMHO.

    You'll find a little on Finnish used British mess kits in the "The Finnish Junkyard" under "Cutlery".

    Finnish Junkyard

    Jarko's website has a wide range of information on SA gear.

    1939 dated mess tins have sold for a pretty penny in the past, i suspect they will continue to do so.
