Photo postcard of some German soldiers along with a woman and young girl around a military mobile field kitchen incorporated into a horse-drawn 4-wheel wagon. On top of the wagon is a board with the written menu.


Karl Rudolf Fissler of Idar-Oberstein invented a mobile field kitchen in 1892 that the Germans came to refer to as a Gulaschkanone ("goulash cannon"), because the chimney of the stove resembled ordnance pieces when disassembled and limbered for towing.
