looks post war. 

But my unit issue us "iron rations" and I being the wurst guy. Pun was intended. I supply the unit with jaegerwurst.  We eat tinned food, chocolates, erstaz coffee, keks, and pumpernickel bread.  But there is one guy in the community who own a original field kitchen, he attach himself to 2nd Panzer, one of the largest unit in midwest with several armors. Anyway, he's really nice guy, host two events and usually cooks up a traditional german meal for everyone.

This is him and his original field kitchen.

...does your group provide the food...

Had a giggul. Just like ammo, you've got to pay to play and pay to be fed. So that means bringing your own food and booze to contribute to the pile. Often for larger units there will be a designated cook that will bring and cook food for a price and units that are in good relation to the cook's unit will be offered the food at a price.

3.PzG has one and we had some very good soup at FIG cooked up by them from their Gulaschkanone. The picture you posted is post-war as fuck. Here's the one they've got.

The three metal containers in the doorway (not the gasoline/water containers) are called "Essenträger" and my unit has one we use to store bottles of water, alcohol, and then occasionally other food. It's basically a huge heavy ass thermos you can wear as a backpack.

my unit is thinking about buying essentraeger, thanks to UMUV. 

Thankfully my unit doesn't have a due at all. Maybe one day we will but the prices from what I hear for other units makes me nervous. 3rd Pz here charges $150 a year.

Oh yeah, ofc it is postwar. Just wanted to post a picture without spending time finding an actual ww2 one.
That is pretty nice though. I guess you can cook some nice soups and stews in there.

Yeah, the Essenträger does come in handy. Something I think would be awesome would be to see horse-drawn carts since they were a very common sight in the horse-drawn army.

Do you actually have any horses in WW2 reenactment? For artillery for example?

Haven't seen a horse at the events yet. But i'm sure it easily can be done. Horses are like whores in America.

Oh don't be so quick to believe you're safe.   Duuring is quite fond of his horse. Let say he has his way keeping warm at night.......
