Many photos of Fallschirmjäger on Kreta in 1941 show them wearing canteens without cups......they were not setup for cups, in the same way as some of the ones posted above. I have two canteens (1 pre-war and 1 1941) that have blue covers and not setup for cups. Have always wondered of they were HJ or Luftwaffe. Will try to dig them out and post photos.
