    It's hard to tell the colour from your photos, but generally WWI water bottles were blue and WWII canteens were green, though apparently the RAF had blue ones - lighter in shade than the WWI version.

        I have several Canadian issue water bottles in my collection that are blue enamel with grey wool felt covers that are ink stamped on the bottom with maker marks (GSW - General Steel Wares) and dated during WW2. In my experience most water bottles even in WW2 were blue enamel.
