There are a lot of survival tin guides on here, but I still decided to make one. I am a royal marine cadet and have made this survival tin up with a lot of thought put into it. I have taken it on all of my cadet exercises and always have it with me. It was specially put together for a natural resources and survival weekend.
Step 1: The tin itself
The tin i have used is an old mini-mess tin. The reason i used this is unlike other mess tins it has a lid and can easily be emptied. It is best to use a metal container as you can then use it to heat and boil water, as well as offering you a container to purify water.
I also added one of my spare boot elastics, not only does it keep the container closed but it also can be used if you lose one of the ones you are wearing or one breaks
