Hi Mr Baggins. Thanks for responding again ! I have looked at the website and it looks very promising. They do have what I’m after. I will give it a while just in case someone comes up with one on here. Thanks again.

Hi Mr Erbswurst. I’m after the full kit.
I already have a trangia burner (not svea) so the pots & wind shield are the main bits I’m looking for.
Cheers

Yes, indeed!

Surplus shops sell them. During WW2 they made a pretty heavy stainless steel version because they saved aluminium for other things. These are pretty expensive because relatively rare.
Older versions have that additional cloth hanger hook. Because I never owned one I don't know exactly how they had been used and if it's sad that the newer versions don't have them.

Thanks guys, surplusand outdoors sell an aluminium (style) one grade 1 for £30 inc postage compared with floby...... in Sweden a stainless set (original) for £50.
I’m sure they will both do the same thing ???? Which one to go for ???

If you are hiking probably aluminium, for canoeing stainless steel?

That's not China made.
The steel version is really heavy!

If you are out a lot it is possible to dig with a steel spoon through such a alumiminium mess kit within 10 years.
I did it with a German one.

It´s so confusing when people aska bout swedish military trangia.
Do they mean this (which is messkit M/40):

Or this which IS trangia:

Because there is no such thing as swedish army trangia.

Hi Herman30. Thanks for the pics. It’s the mess kit m40 I’m after. I agree there’s not an army trangia, it seems to be a generic term.

I have a stainless m40 mess kit I’d sell, all there and in decent condition, tough as boots, the windshield appears nearly new.
Windshield, both pans in stainless, military Trangia with crowns stamped underneath, Trangia fuel bottle.
Are you local to Norfolk at all? Be best to have a look...

Hi. Definitely interested, just what I’m looking for . Nowhere near I’m afraid, I’m in West Midlands but obviously would pay for postage.
Could you pm some pics and asking price please. Cheers

I also think about buying one.

Would you please tell me the exact weight without fuel bottle and the volumes of pot and pan-lid?
