Nothing spectacular here but I picked up this nice 44 dated mess kit today for a good price. It's actually my first with any utensils included at all. The spoon is marked U.S. and SILCO STAINLESS on the back. Hope the pictures are okay.

Awesome! I once had a mess kit named to a marine... Forgot what exactly he did in the war, but it looked like it had seen lots of action.

I wish I could have seen it, that's pretty neat. You definitely don't see many named mess kits out there.

I actually have a pic! I'll PM it to you. It was pretty neat.... It had his name and serial number on every piece of it, including utensils!

I see these at swap meets all the time, lots of people used them for camping

 

I use my stainless mess hall tray for eating once in a while just for fun with USN marked utensils
