I think soldiers ended up getting THEIR bottom back but I think the lid's a different story. In the war, often times one or two guys would carry all the mess kits from the squad or platoon from the front line to the field kitchen and back. I doubt they were too particular on arranging them all so the serial numbers matched. I'm sure that everyone wanted theirs back, but in combat, I doubt it was possible.
