    Default US WW2 Canteen Cover ?

    I have this canteen with a cover that has been modified for a shoulder strap addition, can anyone tell me when the cover was produced? There are no LEGIBLE marks on it. The canteen cup is marked Vollrath 1962, but the whole thing could have been put together at any time.Any ideas ?

    It looks like it has been modified to be used in British web equipment.

    While patterned upon the US M1910 canteen cover it is not US nor WW2 issue.

    Vegar is correct about the British 1937 pattern web adaptation.

    I think this was used by one of the smaller European armies post war, maybe Belgian???

    Cheers, Ade.
