An earlier poster was seeking info on cavalry mess tin covers. All khaki, or some white?. I regret I do not know!..all the ones I have seen and have are khaki though. I also have a 1901 dated British made tin in a leather cover...the cover may be Australian manufacturer?. I am certain mess tin covers were not used in the British cavalry....but only by the Light Horse. Can anyone enlighten me on any official orders and introduction dates for thes covers?. The previous poster re these covers had referred to the 03 pattern. John.M.
