    I just picked up a mess kit one, here is a sideways pic. Have no idea why it is sideways, but it is what it is.

    I cannot clearly see the first kanji of the surname ... but it looks like 大.

    We are the Pilgrims , master, we shall go
    Always a little further : it may be
    Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
    Across that angry or that glimmering sea...

    I recently bought this cover. Would a regular army canteen with carrying strap be inserted into it?

    Yes, a normal canteen goes inside. There are at least 2 versions, the later model improvised a covering for the exit of the carry straps as freezing started in those two exposed sections.
