Dixie, Stove (?)About this object
This is said to be a dixie. A dixie is a cooking pot, a mess tin, a personal plate/dish usually associated with military camps. Like many military terms, dixie is of Indian origin, from the hindi "degshi" for cooking pot.
Though this is said to be a dixie, we also think that it may be a sort of cooking stove in which a fire is set underneath using gas or kerosene, and a pot is placed on the top.
