Re: german water bottle with rare cup(orange)
It does exist a few period photos that show the light green bakelite cup in use.
Below, here's one taken in Russland and dated 1944.
Of interest are the black bakelite cup with coconut canteen on the left, and the light green bakelite cup with standard canteen on the right...
Until now, i don't remember seeing a photo showing an orange cup, but IMO it's very tough to recognize orange from light green on B & W period photos....another one can be seen in the Brian Davis' book, page 103, top left pic...
