    Thanks for showing. I was hoping to see the hook but it's removed with the extra leather piece holding it, so it's impossible to say if it's medic or GJ. Anyway, the whole strapping is placed on the wrong way: the front side of strapping is placed to the back side of the bottle and vice versa, I hope you got me, my English is poor.

    Thanks for the info. I went ahead and switched the strapping to make it look right.

    To illustrate the difference between medic and GJ canteens (note the hooks!). Also, the medic canteen must have the long shoulder strap (which mine shown here is missing).
