    Default Canadian Canteen Found

    Hello, whilst visiting the somme i found a canadian canteen.
    On the bottom it says:
    Canadian Aluminium Supply Company 1916.
    I have never seen one before, and was hoping that someone could upload a picture of a complete one, so i can see what it should look like! (Have been unable to find a picture of one searching)
    Thanks
    Jimbo

    Hi Jimbo,

    Here is a CASC water bottle, the same as yours, which was an early WW1 type. It is mostly seen in photo's being worn on the 1914 pattern kit. Yours shows classic sign of decompression due to close proximity of blast.

    Regards, Ned.
