Here's another view. This belt is not original but the camera and the canteen are.

Medic Bottle
I believe this to be a German medics bottle but it has no markings, can anyone give me some more information, e,g, a date and why it has no markings.
Many thanks

@ TheChef: This is a bottle of female helpers of the DRK before 1937, but do not ask me when this type was introduced (i find it in a manual of 1935 for example). No markings... i guess because there was no need then for doing so.

The bread bag strap is not to be attached at it.

This is one that imo I consider a very late example with rare tan bakelite cup?

Its currently at auction:

Another beginner question:

I'm assuming that some of the canteens have felt covers because felt has insulating properties.

Are there any other reasons?

Are there drawbacks to felt?

I went ahead and purchased a German WW2 canteen Complete with the tin cup.

I made the mistake of opening it and sniffing...:eek:

I hope that was 'only' tea or coffee that had been in there last...

I also have a WW2 British Canteen with a canvas cover. Haven't opened that one yet...and probably shouldn't either...::

I've found this one recently.
I like this late type.

Nice one. Now you need to find nice, matcing steel AEM.A cup for it.

FreeRange 11-18-2014 03:34 PM

They stopped using felt later on? Do we know why?

the cloth is a good quality, typical of start war
the buttons are in brass, are marked S.H.B

Cap is in bakelite like glass embellished with a band added by the soldier.
