Default Canteens

Two of my favorite canteens. A pre-war medics canteen with black painted aluminum cup. All matching to regards to maker and date on the straps, cover, cap and neck of canteen.

And a true tropical canteen and strap, dated '42. The aluminum cup is painted in that olive tan color.

very nice Willi ! I think that in such a good condition and matching maker/dates, they are quiet hard to get.


here is a Sanitäter canteen, note the erzats-leather.

These are the other three from my collection. 2 early ones with black painted aluminium cup ( 37 and 39 dated), and a mid/late war one with green painted steel cup, which is also painted red inside against rust I think. This one is dated 43' and has a nice LUX-canvas/tropical strap, which is reinforced with leather.

Yes Jan, I agree. Textbook all complete, untouched and matching canteens are tough to find.

Here are a few '44 dated ones. Steel painted canteens and steel painted cups. Note the late-war fabric used on some of them.

Well actually they had cups , WW1 aluminium model ones , that were kept in the brotbeutel .
The ones I saw were mainly dated 38 and 39 , but it doesn't prove anything ...
On that subject , I have quite an oddity to display that will necessitate a few days of patience from you gentlemen ...
