not mid war, but rather late war (cover) , probably put together
canteen is 43, cover is 44/45, and straps... not sure, but I would put them in the timeframe 41/42
Two things to add :
the contenance is 0,80 cl, not 0,70
the canteen is lacquered, not enameled...
"I didn't use any weapon in combat during the war, but i killed hundreds, perhaps thousands of men...they're now at the bottom of the sea"
Walter Borg (ex-MI6) Agent and radio operator in Malta, Tunisia and Italy between 1941 and 1945. Arrested twice, tortured twice, escaped twice, survived the war...
