    Default Military designed items that have run the test of time.

    Thought I would start a discussion re "Military designed items that have run the test of time".
    Here's one,
    US Cup Canteen for M1910 canteen.

    The basic design remained in service for around 100 years and had few changes over it's life. Simple and effective.

    There would be many such items I would feel, What's your call.

    66 Years old and still the most well know fire arm. Will not be surprised if it is still being passed around in another 100 years.

    Good one Morris, Yep will still be around in 100 years.

    The Boatswains Call or Bosun's Whistle, has been around in basically the same form since before the Crusades. Whilst traditional in use today it was once a very important naval communication device on the decks of fighting ships of the past.
