4 person mess table


Recommended Posts

I would have never even looked at this table since it doesn't look GI. The antique store owner pointed it out to me. Well marked and even has an instruction sheet glued to the bottom. Measures roughly 4 foot square.

Looks just like the tables we had in our mess hall during basic training. I never had a chance to look at the underside for a label. I was always looking at the floor while doing push ups though.

I collect US Army chevrons and US Army Finance Corps items. I also collect CCC insignia.

Great find Robin, I would never have expected to find anything like that.

It shares the same stock number that's listed in the 1944 QM 3-3 supply catalog, so they did exist during WW2.

The ones you guys ate your meals on probably dated back to WWII. They were probably used for a very, very long time.
