1) A good original set of WW2 mess tins. these are very similar to the WW1 Cavalry issue mess tins but were produced during WW2 for issue to the RAF etc. The tins are in good order The outside has a dull finish to it, not sure if this is the original or if it was original shiny? it retains its shiny finish inside. they are nicely maker marked and dated 1941. A nice looking set of tins.
