    Default My new Water Bottles !

    Here are my new water bottles - Medic and regular one (late war cover with red bottle).
    Some nips here and there - rusty snaps but complete with exception of metal bracket missing from the cup.
    Will take better pics once I get the snaps to open :-)
    Anybody with a spare shoulder strap for the medic one ? :-)

    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Careful with the snaps! Don't put pressure on the wool. NH

    Thanks - yes, I need to apply the oil with syringe and let them sit :-)

    Hello George,
    The Sanitšter canteen has been modified. This type of canteen with shoulder strap normally comes with a hook instead of the carbine clip visible on its back. IMO it has been used this way, without shoulder strap...the cup shouldn't be the bakelite type but a specific aluminium type.
    Thanks

    I know what you mean - the belt hook as on the bread bag. I think it was done period since it matches the wear and clip is period.
    Also correction, the medic bottle is red and the other one is alu dated 1943.

    Managed to open both of them and the red medic one is marked MN 44.
