    I have seen a number of Third Reich military items pressed into service after the war. The first time I saw such a thing was about 15 years ago at a dealer's house.

    On ebay now for 99 US dollars described as a "survival" canteen. I don't buy the Luftwaffe survival canteen bit. Unless someone has evidence to the contrary I think these are post war re-use of military items made for consumer sale. NH

The "mystery" remains even thou many interesting theories have been expressed..
