    Default WW1 British canteen

    Hello everyone,

    I would like to ask you, how to tell the difference between a ww1 made British canteen and post-war or ww2 production.

    Consider that; there is no canteen cover, no straps, no carrier..

    Just the differences between the metal containers..

    All I do know is, some ww2 models had rubber stoppers instead of corks.

    Thank you.

    G'day

    I can tell you that the WW1 canteens are domed at the shoulder, here's mine for you to see. The one with the leather carrier is WW1, the others are WW2.
