    Rene,
    Very nice find. I'm used to the jerry cans with the rectangular center. Where these "X" cans used for fuel or water?
    One more ? Where these the same size?

    Good observation I get you on the centre of the X, and I didn't pick up on that!!! I can only go by what it says on the can "flammable" etc Thanks for that.
    These are always 20 litre

    Hi René, what a great find.

    This style of pressing to the can is the earlier version.

    Cheers, Ade.

    G'day Guys,
    I've checked my two local stores and I did grab a British 44 can for a mate, the rest I saw are ADF 95 & Swedish 50's dated cans, good luck on your locals as I believe there are more Kraut one's out there!

    There are none at Dandenong or Frankston, just a lot of East German and Swedish...earliest date was 1988
