Post your canteen

This is kind of random but I thought this would be interesting. No matter what time period you reenact, you probably have a canteen.



I'm actually surprised by how clean mine looks. It's been through a lot though.

I heard a weird story about a lot of canteens rusting and getting damaged while on campaign as colonels ordered their men to remove their canteen covers so that they would all look the same lol.

That's the most non-sensical thing I've ever heard. So it must be true. xD

My youngest brother's canteen doesn't have a cover and that thing warms up quick. Drenching the cover is a necessity to keep it cool. Also, no burning yourself, there's less noise, and no blinding friend and foe alike... so many pros to having a cover.

By the way, sweet canteen there, Dordak. I'll post my ACW, WWI, and WWII canteens soon enough.

Ain't it pwetty? I'll get a new one soon, though, as this one has been bought out of need and has some flaws.

Of course not, that would be very unsanitary of you to do.
