US military eating utensils kit

US military eating utensils kit

Soldiers had to carry their personal items around with them as they moved from place to place. It was important for personal items to be small, compact, and easy to carry. This eating utensil kit, used by Norman Claussen of St. Paul, contains a fork, a knife, a spoon, and a canvas bag. The bag is about seven inches long, so the utensils are likely a bit smaller.
