    Default Found a German Canteen today, need some info on it

    So while me and my father were doing ammo inventory for my grandpa I found this in a box of misc stuff, it's marked kcl 39 on the bottle and it's missing the cover and chain. It's got a weird line around it that makes me think it might've been a tropical canteen. Not sure if it was though. Sorry for the bad pictures

    Hello,
    It is a stripped prewar/early war german M31 canteen in aluminium. It lacks the felt cover, the leather carrying system and the black painted aluminium cup. When it was produced in 1939, there was no tropical equipment yet...just the standard canteen...
    Thanks

    Thanks JP, what was the companies full name that made this one? I don't know anything about canteens, it's also missing the cap lining.
