Thank's again! So let forget those kind of post war thermos… Let's talk about the brotdose, it was also civilian issue? I have seen many models made post war and by DDR. Thank you for help!

Brotdosen and other sorts of containers are private purchased Items. Regular Food related Field Equipment (Personal Items) was only:

-Butterdosen (Fettbüchse) or Fat Container
-Field Cuttlery (Feldessbesteck) (Göffel) and / or (4-teiliges Essbesteck)
-Canteen (Feldflasche 31)
-Mess Kit (Kochgeschirr)

Best Regards

Andy

Does anyone know why the shape was almost always kidney shape rather than just an oval? I don't think any bread was kidney-shaped, and this would have been more expensive to make than just oval.
