    Hello,
    Tom is right, that's a WWII italian messkit. But the italian messkit was left unpainted (bare aluminium) when the italian soldier was issued with it. This green paint indicate that this italian messkit was reissued to the german army...so not german but used by the german army....hope it helps...
    Thanks

    it's the story of a man who falls from a fifty floors building, throughout his fall he says to reassure himself, so far so good, so far so good, so far so good, but what does matter is not the fall....it's the landing (La Haine, 1995)

    Hello to all,
    I confirm that this is an Italian aluminum mess kit mod. 1930 "small type", because there was a larger version used by Alpine Troops.
    As has been correctly said, it was generally used without painting, are rare the examples painted in gray-green anti-reflective color, it was used sporadically since 1943, most probably after the Armistice, part of these examples ended in German hands.
    If it can be helpful, I add some photos of the two configurations in comparison.

    Regards
    Roberto
