German ammo tin sized oil can found in Jersey, Channel Islands.
Here is an unusual ammo tin sized oil can that we do not see too many of over here in Jersey, Channel Islands. This one has just turned up and is complete with its turnable spout and cap. Previously seen examples have the early 3 colour camo paint on. This example appears to be the same with traces of tan paint on and around the spout area. Its in overall good condition and they just don't turn up that often over here. I thought you might like to see it because its unusual. I will give it a clean up and then decide what to do with it. If anyone has any info on these it would be much appreciated.
All the best from Jersey,

Hello , it's for the water cooled MG 08 or MG 08/15
Some times you can find it with OEL on it.
Yes this one has the remains of oil in it still. I don't think I will be keeping it though as I do have a nicer 3 colour camo example tucked away here somewhere.
All the best,
I think it's typical from the bunkers of the west..
