All West German Bundeswehr attendees are required to have a correct West German mess kit as well as a knife fork spoon set (KFS). Your kit must be German however we will accept any knife fork spoon set if you cannot find the original KFS set pictured above. East German kits are of sub-standard quality and are not acceptable.

  • Make sure your set is clean and smooth, avoid sets that are pitted inside or have excessive scratches since they are harder to keep clean and sanitary.
  • If your set is excessively sooted from use over a fire, it usually cleans up well with the use of a light scouring powder such as Bon Ami.
