    A dismounted pattern 16 water bottle holder. It is maker marked and dated. It also has a C broadarrow stamp on the bottom strap.
    Yes, I realize the canteen is not the correct one, it came with it.

    Please pardon my ignorance but how does a Mk VI canteen vary from the "correct" canteen for use with Patt 16 dismounted?

    Certainly the wool felt cover on the canteen above looks like a WW2 cover.
