    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I've just been informed by my Associate in Germany that these are Postwar Markings...

    Correct, Polizei Präsidium Berlin.....

    And indeed, post war.... Not only mess tins, but also canteens exist with this markings...
    Mostly with blue felt, and often sold as luftwaffe

    Tom is quite correct. The "blue felt" canteens were sold in large numbers as surplus. The black cups are the same design as WWII. I use one of them for re-enacting. They carry the exact same marking. NH
