Note: (from author)

In England we have nesting sets of aluminum cooking pots with a steel wire handle. They look like a small straight sided bucket or paint pot. These are called Billy's or Billy cans. We also have larger cast iron or steel cooking pots usually oval in shape. Most of these are army surplus and are known as Dixie's.
