WWII Nazi German Wehrmacht M31 Canteen & Cup
LIMITED ITEM. SURPLUS - USED. NON-REFUNDABLE ITEM. Once they are gone we may not get any more.
This canteen and cup are a great WWII find. Standard issue .8 liter capacity aluminum construction type. All complete. beautiful cover and straps. Canteen is marked "SSL 40". Introduced on March 23RD 1931 the standard issue M31 canteen was based on the WWI M1893 and M1907 canteens with minor modifications. Originally the M31 canteens were manufactured in aluminum but later as the aluminum was required for other more critically essential items the canteens began to be manufactured in steel. In late 1940 during the North African campaign the standard brown felt cover and leather retaining straps and carrying harness of the canteen were altered to an olive drab felt cover and web straps for longer wear in the tropical climate. Canteens were an intrical part of a soldier's personal kit. A great find for any collector.
Features of the Canteen:
- Condition: Excellent canteen. leather and cup and Very Good for felt cover(small amount of damage to the felt)- Working condition
- .8 L
NOTE: Over the years we have collected items with historical interest. The majority of our memorabilia is war related and we do not wish to offend anyone. We do not support or condone war but believe that historical items can remind us of our history, teach us about specific moments in time and hopefully prevent us from reliving any manmade horrific times in history. Any items we offer are intended for collectors of memorabilia and hopefully will be used for educational purposes. All of our collectables come from our own private collection via many X-service personnel and government auctions and have included Nazi party, Holocaust, Allgemeine and Waffen SS, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, Kamikaze, Japanese, Australian, U.S., British items, etc. We should not forget our past but should endeavor to learn from its mistakes. It is our hope we never forget those that have died as a result of war. May god protect them!
