    Default is this a war relic ?

    I found this canteen in the attic of my grandfathers shed in Newfoundland Canada. He had a Brother with the Royal Newfoundland Regiment in France during WW1. Does anyone know if it would be from that era?

    Thank you.

    Welcome to the forum Brian.

    Good job coming here for advice. Someone with a bit more knowledge than me will surely be by in a short while with an answer for you.

    Regards,

    I believe it's a WWI German Medic's Canteen...do the buttons on the side have this type of snap?
    cheers, Glenn

    Unfortunately, although similar, there is too much corrosion on the snaps to be able to tell for certain.

    Sometimes alittle spit on your finger and some VERY light rubbing on the metal will leave the deepest spots darker, so if you are quick you can sometimes see traces of original stamps and so on.
    Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.
