This is a vintage Mess Kit that has a World War I WW1 Frying Pan Skillet Aluminum bottom with a coated cast steel handle. The rusted handle is marked U.S. LF&C 1918. I found L. F. & C (Landers, Frary & Clark). The markings are very hard to read. The top is WWII style aluminum that has no markings. It has a ring at the end. The Mess Kit has black stains from use over a fire and prior owner initials so sold as is. On a search I found “Shortly after WWI the Marine Corps designed, adopted and produced at the Philadelphia Depot a replacement two compartment plate to be used with the Model of 1918 meat cans acquired from the Army during the War. The Army was in the process of modifying the handles of the existing meat cans (M1910 and M1918), cups and utensils to facilitate field cleaning procedures. At the same time Jeffersonville Quartermaster Depot acquired a trial quantity of the two-compartment plates from the Marine Corps. The compartmented plate and modifications were adopted as the aluminum M-1932 meat can and was classified STANDARD. During the “Emergency” the M-1932 meat can was contract manufactured in 1941-42. “ It is well used with scratches, wear, small dents, many black fire stains, and initials.
