    This Swedish milspec outfit features a No:154 paraffin stove with stainless steel body in a steel box with various utensils & aluminum pans.
    It would have originally come with a spares kit & tools.

    I am not certain what a KOKUTRUSTNING is, but I am convinced I need one. Man I like burbon and coke mixed. Don't stop me now, I am on a roll.

    It would appear that the Swedish army is disposing of a lot of their surplus cooking gear. I bought 3 of the Swedish Army Mess Kits with the Trangia Alcohol stove. One is all aluminum, one is stainless pan and aluminum pot and one is all stainless. Very nice piece of kit but all but unavailable now. Wonder if these field kitchens will disappear soon too. Wonder what the Swedish Army will be cooking on in the future? Oh, yeah, MRE's.

    Swedish to English

    KOK = Cook
    UTRUSTNING = Equipment

    Cooking equipment

    10 refers to the size of the pots alas how many men can be cooked for at one time.

    I took this picture to add a picture of the missing spares&tools kit in Spiritburners presentation of the Group Cooking Kit 10B/S . It shows the spare Optimus 207 burner (NOS!), the spare parts box (with jet, gaskets, spindle and other parts), the very long jet extraction tool and the multi-tool. All of them on top of the pouch where they reside.

    [I bought this used surplus 10 B/S kit just to get hold of a pair of spare burners for my KAP-Arctic. I will be saving the Opti 154 for the time being, the spare parts kit will join the KAP - and maybe one or two of the cooking kit utensils will end up in my kitchen drawers. The rest will be properly recycled. These Group Cooking Kits turn up on Swedish auction sites and in Surplus stores now and then. The Army had heaps of them after its introduction in 1989/1990 (back when we had an army worth the name), and now (without any Army left) they're just surplus inventory being sold off...]
