This is early postwar DDR canteen, but could be nicely fit to re-enactor's kit

Thank you for your reply. Do you have an example of an early DDR canteen to show me?
Hi Kaj, Dimas is correct. Note the "MdI" markings. MdI, Ministerium des Innern (Department of the Interior).
Da Comrades, it is a DDR Water Bottle to Red Army/ after 46, Soviet pattern, called a War Reparation Water Bottle by some Russian dealers.
I use one as part of my Re-constructionist gear.
