Product Description

A very unusual and rare WWII period British Officer in the Indian Army canteen.

The canteen looks like a huge Thermos flask in tinned steel, which has been covered in brown leather in order to make it look like Army Officers kit. Inside there is a stacking set of three aluminium canteens. The system is similar to the drum canteens used by factory workers in present day India.

There are no distinguishing marks but it belonged to a Captain W.A Wemys of the India Army Ordinance Corps. Complete with its carrying straps.

Size: 37 x 15cm
