I think the standard ration was 4 cans. If I remember correctly this is what the M1910 manual calls for. Of course this would have been dictated by the situation.

What manual is that pic from? I love the early haversack with the early pack tail and the early bacon can.

The photo is from the book "What Sammy's doing" which was published for the homefront during WW1. It contains great photos of the early M1910 gear.

It does occasionally come up for sale on ebay.
