WWII Canteen Cover 1944


Recommended Posts

Found this one today for $25 with a canteen. Airstress Midland 1944. Respectable condition and will go well with my 1944 Collette. Very hard to find these 1944 covers.

I’m sure this pistol belt, metal canteen and cover are WW2, but the canteen cover has a 1926 date stamp. Could this be early stock used during WW2?

'44-dated Canteen Covers are indeed scarce, as are '43-dated Covers made in O.D. #7 canvas. 

I stocked up on '44s years ago (below) when there were a few more to be had than there are today, but still have yet to find a dark O.D. '43. Found one in mint condition in a friend's catalogue years ago for $125.00, but it was already gone by the time I phoned him.
