Gamelle individuelle modèle 1852
Thanks to : Oldpaper
The truncated model dates back to 1852, when it was established by Marshal St. Arnaud.
it includes a proper bowl, a plate and a lid, the latter is connected to the bowl by a chain.
It will be partially replaced in 1939 and 1940 models bowls 1935.
The bowl allows the soldier to eat, cook or carry their food.
Adopted in 1852 is a bowl made of tinned iron , with a lid connected by a chain clinging to one of the two loops that allow you to put the bowl on top of the knapsack held by a belt. It was built many variations depending on the time .
In December 1915 (appears in the Official Gazette in 1916 ) included a dish with a removable handle.
The model that I present is in one piece and model of the cavalry as wider and made of tinned iron , it is clear that the dish is smaller than the bowl . The handles are welded , not riveted . The rider or soldier had probably mle 1852 which he added the dish. I miss the handle flat as most times .
