    Hello,

    I want to share with you my recent find from Kijiji : a nice ww2 canadian P37 canteen typical pre-1942 fabrication. There is a named tag from the previous owner (war or after?). Used condition and dust as I enjoy!

    Name Tag

    The name tag is post-WWII. These were used into the early 1980s and I think originated in the 1960s. Wartime markings on equipment usually consists of the service number.

    Très belle piece, tu as trouvé sur Kijiji ? Câline il faut que je regarde la de temps en temps.
    Surement utilisé après guerre a voir le nom du soldat cousus sur la sangle.
