I've had a dickens of a time getting the right lighting that would show the markings on this canteen. This afternoon, I think I finally got it.
This canteen belonged to a local 4th Division Iwo veteran. It's kinda crude compared to many trench art canteens, but it's the real-deal, and a cherished part of my collection.
His simple nararative of Iwo on the day of the landing tells a story.
Please feel free to add other USMC canteens and gear to this thread :thumbsup:
