    Hi

    Not to be negative, bit it looks like the buttons will not close.... (often happens to the canteens because the felt sometimes shrinks when getting wet)

    Also it is probably a put together one, because it should have webbing tabs on the felt as well.... this looks like a normal leather one, with webbing straps added

    I hope the felt will close

    the canteen itself (red enamelled) is mid to late war, the felt i can't tell... is there a maker mark on the inside between the buttons ? brown leather was used very early, but also late.....
    the straps are probably around 42.... the earlier ones has alu caps, and this one is bakelite, which suggests aprox 41/42
