    Default M31 Mess Kit completes the set

    After collecting on and off for 25 years I have finally achieved my long held ambition of obtaining a full set of German infantry Equipment with the purchase of a M31 Mess Kit - I have struggled to find a Mess Kit in good condition with the elusive strap for years. (Each individual item shown has been separately reviewed on the Forum and has been authenticated by the Experts). Kind regards Colin

    Well done. Some rare items in there too. NH

    Nice, very nice! Still looking for things myself, still don't have a mess kit in fact, but if I really wanted one I'd have one by now. How much did the Zeltbahn/straps set you back? Is that a DAK scabbard on the bayo?

    Larboard, Zeltbahn and straps were 65 - 15 years ago! Yes, the Bayonet is a DAK item and technically should of course be a European leather one.

    Very nice! one thing missing (not really super important) is an A frame bag.
    The frog is still ok here as they were still used in Europe as you would already know

    Very nice setup

    All i can see missing is a set of Y straps !! ( and yes, the A frame bag, and maybe a set of tent pins, Zeltleine, and tent pole)

    And, technically speaking, you need another mess tin strap: the one with the 3 loops, used on A-frames...

    But, it still is a very nice setup ! congrats

    Can only imagine what all that weighs, with ammo pouches, canteen and breadbag full, plus a 98k, heavy boots, hot wool jacket and pants...

    Hello Colin

    Yes, now I see them !! stupid of me

    Then technically you would need an A-frame strap like this (the upper one....)

    btw, did I read correctly ?? You only paid 65 GBP for the A-frame with Zelt ??
