Odd but the Air Force didn't issue them but we could buy them in the base BX. This was in the late 60s, in a war zone. Maybe they only made them for a while. I haven't seen anything like them since 1969.

sounds interesting Tom,

heati g up cans of food with these little stoves is done very easily and quick, the Heet methanol will get things cooking very quickly.
