Does anyone have any images or actual photos of a Buzzacott Stove/Cooking Outfit?  It was the standard field cooking stove issued to US troops during both the Spanish-American War and the Philippines Insurrection, with about 5,000 being purchased for the Army and several hundred for the Marine Corps.  Am writing an article for publication in Marine Corps History magazine, and am looking for a clear photo or even images of an existing one in someone's collection.  Thanks!

Doug - did you find any photos of the Buzzacotts oven? Just found a reference saying that companies were provided with "one army field oven, 'Buzzacotts'." Would love to see one of these things.
