    Hi Rob , amazing that you found the canteen yourself on Okinawa , that makes it pretty special ! The other on is a nice example also and is date stamped for 1942 .

    Always a little further : it may be
    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    Thanks, Al. I spent a year on Okinawa, 1988-89, while I was in the Marines. The island is full of caves and bunkers, all of which were used during the war. The locals never seem to bother with or show any interest in them. If you look in the over growth you'll find a cave, most are full of debris, even bones. Unexploded ordnance wasn't too hard to find either, grenade, artillery. I could have caught a mac flight to Iwo Jima for the price of $10.00, I regret that I didn't do that. Rob.
