Mobile cooker on the Western Front

Mobile cookers like this one, which belonged to the Wellington Regiment, were able to provide simple hot meals to soldiers in the support trenches within 1000 metres of the front line. The supply of food and hot drinks, such as tea, coffee and cocoa, was crucial in maintaining the health and morale of troops who had to endure not only the anxiety of combat but the physical hardship of days and nights huddled in cold, muddy trenches.
