Hi Max, hi Sturm,

sorry, Max, but I have no idea of the identity of the small "square top" in the foreground of the pic You posted. But it is interesting, that it could be the same type on the two last pics You posted, Sturm.

Best regards

Bert

Hi Sturm 78,

Yes, so it is. It is only missing the so-called "Drehküche" made by the company August Warchalowski - Werner & Pfleiderer in Vienna.
Here aThis field kitchen was introduced in 1909 together with the so-called "Fahrküche M 09", produced by the company Manfred Weiß in Budapest.
Here an extract of an article about food and military in Austria (source: http://www.graf-greifenburg.at/buecherP ... legung.pdf) :
"Es dauerte bis zum Jahre 1909, dass die Feldküchen in der k.u.k. Armee normiert und zugeliefert wurden. Man entschied sich für zwei Typen:Die Fahrküche M 09 der Firma Manfred Weiß in Budapest und die Drehküche der Firma August Warchalowski – Werner & Pfleiderer aus Wien."

Hi Sturm 78,

that´s very interesting. It must be a field kitchen produced in Germany, but not for the German army. It is similar to the small German field kitchen in WW I (later it had the designation. Hf. 12), but it has not the coffee boiler on the left side. I think, that it could be an export version, because the Turkish army had such field kitchens. Maybe Poland also ordered some of these kitchens.
Here a pic of two field kitchens with Turkish soldiers and a pic of a field kitchen in the Australian War Memorial. This field kitchen was captured from Turkish forces in Palestine by the Australian 10th Light Horse Regiment during the First World War.

Best regards

Thanks for your answer, Bert.

I think that the Turkish model is not the same model because the kitchen of my image have a body taller, protruding above the wheels.

Hi Sturm 78,

thank You for Your reply. Of course, You are right. The body of the field kitchen on Your pic is protruding above the wheels, but I don´t think, that it is taller. For me the difference between the two kitchen types are the chassis. I think that Your kitchen has springs in contrary to the Turkish one. Because of it the body is located a little bit higher above the axis than the Turkish one. We have the same phenomen with the field wagen Hf. 1 (normal) and Hf. 1/1 (with springs).

Best regards

Bert

Hi Sturm 78,

Yes, it is. That´s a later version of the Hf. 13 with an additional roasting and stewing unit instead of the storage compartment on the right side. Here a pic of a Hf. 13 with this unit.

Best regards

Bert
