    Hi jimbo,
    It is w.w.2 pattern, but dont forget they went right through the fifties and into the seventies on the old 38 patt webbing. We had recruits useing 38 patt, in the seventies, trained soldiers used the 58 patt, for better.

    Hi Jimbo, I think you will actually find it is WW1 issue?

    WW2 issue examples have a flat top, while WW1 examples have a curved top.

    Of course it lacks the felt covering.

    Cheers, Ade.

    A WW11 blue enamel bottle would have a metal ring at the base of the neck for the cord from the cork stopper making it a MK. V11. Although there was some manufacturing differences in the curved tops and seems I agree with Ade that it is a MK.V1 WW1 issue.
