    Default Field Pieces - Info Needed - Thanks

    Hello All,
    Picked these three pieces up over the weekend, donít know much about them, hope some members can help me out with some information.(1) Ĺ litre water canteen produced by Cloeter dated 1909 stamped M.D.4 run the name Cloeter through google - nothing. Is it a WW1 military piece? if so whatís M.D.4 ?- on the flat side is engraved in Russian, is a persons name, where he came from and the date 1941 - any Russian readers out there to give his name & town. (2) Joined folk & spoon think its WW1 but is stamped H.H.L. 40 any info on period or maker appreciated. (3) Bullet packaging dated 1943 think bullets were for hunting, they look a bit on the small side for the Wehrmacht. Any information welcome.
    Best Wishes

    Hi Alec, I cannot help on the water bottle, but the "Spork" is WW2 German. "40" is the date for 1940.

    The ammo package is military. The maker code "faa" is for Deutsche Waffen- u. Munitionsfabriken AG, Karlsruhe.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hello,
    Sorry i can't help you with the canteen, but maybe a fellow member from eastern Europe can at least translate the engraving. The fork/spoon combo is a WWII german regulation item : maker H.H.L., year of production 1940. The ammo box is for 22. LR rifle i guess....should have been used for training, HJ practising etc.....Hope it helps
    Thanks
