You already asked about this, but I could not find it.
Now I have looked again and in the "Verordnungsblatt der Technischen Nothilfe",
number 6 from June 1936 on page 185 it said: Feldflasche und Brotbeutel, dunkelblau.
So both items were in darker-blue. This was also said in the "Uniformen-Markt",
number 20 from December 1, 1936 page 310. It remained in this color. This is stated
in an addendum to the "Uniformen-Markt", number 11 from June 1, 1940. Page 4
You mention Luftschutz: here it is said, color as for the Luftwaffe. In L.DV.788:
"Vorschrift über die Dienstbekleidung für den Sicherheits- und Hilfsdienst I. Ordnung und
den Luftschutz-Warndienst" from August 1, 1940 it is said on page 40 as: Feldflasche,
Form und Ausführung nach Art der Luftwaffe.
When TeNo started to wear the field-greyish uniforms, they surely will have used
another color, which in line was as for the color of the army. It is said as: "Besondere
Einsatzgruooen der TN wurden mit feldgrauer Uniform ausgerüstet"! Nothing
was said about equipment.
"Wir sollen auch unser Leben für die Brüder lassen" (1.Joh.3.16):
zum Gedächtnis Wilhelm Schenk. Er starb fürs Vaterland am 13. Juni 1916
Wilhelm, thank you very much for your help!
I'm interested in the history of army canteens, and this information is very important to me.
PS I'd like to add - at different forums I've seen a lot of disputes and various versions about these covers. Luftwaffe, Luftschutz...etc
Now, thanks to you, Wilhelm, much has become clear. Thank you again for your willingness to help
Best regards, Michael
