    Hello,
    Tom is right, that's a WWII italian messkit. But the italian messkit was left unpainted (bare aluminium) when the italian soldier was issued with it. This green paint indicate that this italian messkit was reissued to the german army...so not german but used by the german army....hope it helps...
    Thanks
