Picked up this WW1 German Mess Tin. Looked through the imperial threads hoping to find another one to compare with it. Taller by 3cm than WW2 German Mess Tin and has four soup ration marks as against three, Makers Mark reads - E.T.A.G. -THALE - A/H - 14. Does any member know this maker? the only maker I know from Thale is the helmet manufacturer Eisenhuttenwerk. The four letters could stand for Eisenhuttenwerk Thale Aktien Gesellschaft. I was under the impression the firm used the initials EHW, I'm unsure. Any information would be welcome.
