Canadians...

You guys should have bought British military vehicles instead of American's. All British vehicles (I know of the Centurion tank, at least) has a boiling can for their tea (you still can have your coffee!)

With the MI or the Leopard, what can you have? Home made distilled moonshine, at the most...!

I once tried making a cup of tea in the cab of a AEC 10 truck while in convoy, I nearly set the truck on fire.

Erm, I was a full screw section commander.

I had one of those little blue gas burners that used those little blue gas bottles. I had my mess tin almost on the boil when my idiot driver hit a pot hole. The mess tin of hot water went over my boots and the burner ended up on the drivers side of the cab. I had to crawl over the engine cover to retrieve it before it set him on fire. I did call him a pratt.

Those Hexy burners makes the tea taste like paraffin. Spit Spit.
