Hi, the webbing cradle does not look to be British, the canteen however looks to be WW1 British due to the blue enamel paint and the light brown coloured cover, can you tell me what the other end of the cork cord is attached to?
Damn, was hoping it to be WW2. Its attached to i dont know lol. Its under the cover.
WW1 canteens are more scares and cost more than WW2, if the cord is attached to the cover and not a metal ring attached to the canteen then it is ww1, if attached to a ring on the cantten then WW2. However the cord does resemble one which i had on a WW1 canteen.
Water bottle, please!
The cradle reminds me of the leather cavalry pattern.
Great waterbottle LeonardoL!
I am fairly certain it is a WWII-vintage Canadian-made waterbottle. WWII Canadian waterbottles look very similar to the WWI pattern, except for the fact that they have a wire loop soldered to the shoulder of the bottle (under the cover).
The harness doesn't look factory made, but rather makeshift out of spare US-type webbing...
