I went to a tag and picked up this lot of items for $5
Included was this canteen set-up. The pouch is near mint and marked " Des Moines Glove and Mfg Co 1945"
The cup is marked "U.S. B. E. CO. 1945"
The canteen has no markings. It is made of aluminum (non-magnetic) of the style around 1942 with a recessed cap. But it is GREEN. It does not appear to be a home-painted job. The green is even inside the spout, but nothing on the threads.
Any idea if this was made this way and by whom??
Thanks for looking. Comments welcome.
