A great WWII photo of an immersion heater bathtub….

Looking through the latest issue of Army Motors, I saw a great picture of GI’s using an immersion heater like the ones we offer. Just take the trough under the communal well in the town, add an immersion heater, and you have a hot bath in the field! That is the WWII model, but the later M67 models we sell work the exact same, they just simplified the construction.

There is never any shortage of GI ingenuity!

  1. Immersion heaters like this were in use by the Army in the late 1960’s. When I was in training at Ft. Bragg and Ft. Polk, they were used to boil water in galvanized trash cans for sanitizing mess kits in the field.
