WWII POW Mess Kit & Canteen Prisoner Artwork - AMAZING

Recommended Posts

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?

Wow, what a grouping. I love to hear about all the history behind the set, you are a very lucky guy to own it.


Currently looking for K.I.A. Purple Hearts and Identified groupings to Nebraska and Wyoming veterans.

Paul Golly was my grandfather. I didn't know much about his time as a POW and my mom didn't know about this set. I would like to know more about it. That's why I was asking. Thanks.
