Incredible set! Thank you for posting this. I have some etched Pacific POW canteens and mess kits in my collection and they are highly prized by me. The best examples I have seen are from the Pacific. The Germans generally did not allow mess kits and canteens to be taken into the camps they ran.

Do you mind if I move this topic to the POW section in the forum?
