  5. Serving tray: Mess tins can be used to serve food when dining outdoors, providing a convenient and portable option for picnics or camping trips.
  6. Washing basin: Mess tins can be filled with water and used as a basin for washing dishes or personal hygiene items while camping or in the field.
  7. Fire starter: In emergency situations, the reflective surface of a mess tin can be used to signal for help or as a makeshift mirror for starting fires using sunlight.
  8. Signal device: Mess tins can be banged together to create noise, serving as a signaling device in emergency situations.
  9. Digging tool: In a pinch, the sturdy construction of a mess tin can be used as a digging tool for tasks such as digging trenches or holes for burying waste.
