    Hello again Dan,
    They all wrote 70 cl perhaps because they just took the info from another book written by someone who has never tried to test the capacity. I tried for both canteens (80 cl and 1 L) and for both messkits (M1910 and M1931)....

    I have always been surprised that the german army never really increased the capacity of this canteen after WWI (or replaced it). At the end of WWI, many german soldiers were issued with TWO 80 cl canteens as the high command finally realized that thirst was a major problem for the soldier in combat...
    Thanks

    Cheers, Dan
