    Default Help with deciphering Name/Word

    Hello, I’ve been trying to figure out what is painted on the side of this gas mask canister. I am almost certain that it reads “PUDDING” but unless it was taken by a Brit and used for his pudding storage that just doesn’t seem to make any sense. It’s hard to see where the old paint was so I don’t expect anyone to have an exact answer to this but any help with ideas or single letters will be of help.

    I did run it through photoshop but that made me think it reads pudding more.

    Thank you for any help with this.

    I’m pretty certain they are the right way up like this.

    Looks like Pudding to me. Maybe owned by Harley Quinn at one time?

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    If it were PUDDING, then you can see where one's priorities were

    Funny that it is the same in English AND German ........

    Thanks, I wasn’t aware it was the same in both languages, do you think someone could have been named pudding? Or maybe it really was for their pudding.

    I mean, i have heard of these being used as food storage, if so it should be a waterproof version though. These are marked D for dicht on the bottom.

    I don’t think it’s the water proof version, no markings in the metal on the bottom, just an ink date, eagle and three names.

    Yeah, does not look like it. Not perfect for storing food then i suppose. Weird. Also very cool bottom with the ink stamps and the writing, looks like a barely used example, if that would have seen much outside use these probably would be long gone.

    Maybe it somehow never got into real war use?

    It is a nice example, here is the thread on it, don’t think it would help all that much though.

    The last letter looks like a "Y" to me, but I still can't make out the name
