    Hi Carfin,

    I know this link, and it is superb. Really informative. Another great source of information, especially for photographic reference, can be found if you search for Kraftstoff Behalter.

    Cheers!

    Hi Carl
    This is the Three Kanisters I have, the early X can needs to have its paint removed as previous owner made a mess of it.

    Nice cans Martin, thanks for sharing those images with us.

    You probably know what they are, but for those who do not, here is a list of the cans shown above...

    First, is an AMBI-BUDD Presswerk of Berlin manufactured 20L Wasserkanister. AMBI-BUDD manufactured water cans from 1940-43.

    The next piece is an 'X' pattern early model fuel can, made by Nowack Bautzen.

    Finally, the standard pattern fuel can is probably a Fischer, the marking isn't so clear as to be able to confirm it but it appears to be so. They changed their stamp marking in 1944 to a simple 'ebn', however, as this piece was manufactured during 1942, the badge shown would be present.

    Regards,

    Carl
