    Default M31 GJ Feldflasche

    Another pick up today. I nice clean M31 GJ (mountain troop) 1 liter Feldflasche.

    Maker: CLF.

    Date: 1941. Bakelite cup. Aluminum bottle, Steel snap hook and pigskin leather.

    Can anyone help tell me who CLF is and the mark on the cup?

    Regards,

    Michael

    (Thanks JPhillip. Bought your book last year. Quite helpful for me in identifying this canteen)

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    LoL...you left out the non TR stuff....Japanese, US, Italian, British, etc....as well as Katana's, rifles, pistols, swords, daggers, uniforms, photos........

    Agree with you, it's all too nice not to collect. In fact I'm not done posting this week's haul...have an M36 Medical Officers tunic that should go up today if weather permits good photos

    P.S. and that is why I'm not an expert in anything...

    If it's wartime (and isn't it {unfortunately} always), I like it!!!

    Stay tuned. My tunic will be posted soon. Just downloading the pictures I just took.

    I also have to post my other two M1's for you and get your feedback on them....

    Hello,
    Nice 1 liter canteen...congrats for your find.
    The logo on the cup is the logo used by all bakelite producers to indicate from what the bakelite is made of...some bakelite could not contain food or drink i guess...
    Glad you're using the book for your "everyday" collecting....
    Thanks

    Thanks. The book is a really useful resource. And thanks for clarifying that marking. I neglected to add two pictures (one of the cup and one on the stopper) that were much more clear of this marking.
