Hi Ade, indeed mostly they were marked LUX on the back of the metal tab. But I was wondering were the line is between tropical and non tropical, please take a look at post # 89, page 6, were I posted a canteen that I got in some weeks ago, it has a LUX marked strap, aluminium body and 41 dated bakelite cup.What is exactly the difference between that one and for example the one posted by Willi in post #5 ( right one): Is it the strap? The bakelite body of the canteen? ( did you also had aluminium tropical issued canteens?) the markings? etc....I would like to know what criteria is needed to say that a certain canteen is a tropical one?

Cheers

Jan
