    I just read the story about AMBI-BUDD - very interesting story on wiki

    "...In 1925, William Morris visited the Budd factory and when he returned home he started the Pressed Steel Company in Coventry. In Germany, Budd worked with Arthur Müller and set up a steel pressing plant as "ABP" (Ambi Budd Presswerke) in the old Rumpler factory and quickly became the leading supplier of pressed-steel components. That Budd owned 26% of the Adler stock and they were located next door to the German assembly plant for Chrysler probably helped.[1] Budd also supplied bodies for early BMWs as well as German Fords. In 1943, the company had to move production underground due to bomb attacks from the allied air forces. They also made parts for the Focke Wulf fighters. They also made bodies for the Volkswagen Kübelwagen and Schwimmwagen. The Berlin plants were completely destroyed by bombing during WW2. After the war, the Budd plant ended up in the Soviet sector. The machines and tools were dismantled and most of them shipped to the Soviet Union. In the USA, Budd made shell and bomb casings and helmets during the war...."

    Does any one know what the stamp on the Wasser Kanister is for?

    The "w" marking indicates that the can should only be used for water. The other marking is the WaA (WaffenAmt) stamp, used by the German Weapons Agency. Some have said that these markings are not genuine, asking "why should a kanister be marked in a similar way to a weapon?". The truth is, that they were marked in this manner, because when the kanister is carried by a tank or other armed vehicle, as many were, then it becomes a part of the machine and thus, a part of the weapon.

    Hi All,

    Posting the (not so great) photos of my very first 'Kanister', which just arrived today:
    It's a 1942 Nirona (Nirona-Werke Nier u. Ehmer Auto u. Fahrrad-Zubehör Beiersfeld) numbered 22 (I think)

    Cheers - Fabe

    PS: THX to Carl with his info & help!
