The essay comments on the messing of Czechoslovak legionaries in Russia between 1918 and 1920 from several points of view. Except for outlining the mechanism of supplies, space is given to the legionaries' attitudes to the mess. It shows the elaborate complex of gastronomic experience, which the volunteers acquired in Russia and on their way home at world seas and oceans. The most important resources come from diaries, contemporary documents and from legionaries' own autobiographies.
