    I thought I'd post some pictures of my Canadian washroll display so far. I'm off to a good start thanks to some good friends on this forum, but I'm still looking for a couple of items.

    Canadian Washroll Display 01_can10

    The injection molded hair comb is marked "MADE IN CANADA"

    Canadian Washroll Display 02_mad10

    The "BUTLER" brand razor was made in Sheffield and features a broad arrow and 1942 date.

    Canadian Washroll Display 03_19411

    The buttonstick was made by Coulter Copper & Brass Company, Limited of Toronto and features a Canadian broad arrow.

    Canadian Washroll Display 04_cou10

    The Canadian issue fork features a hole in the handle (similar to US Army cutlery) as well as the letter 'C.' This particular example also features a Canadian broad arrow.

    Canadian Washroll Display 05_for10

    This fork was made by International Silver Company (INSICO).

    Canadian Washroll Display 06_ins10

    The Canadian issue spoon also has a hole in the handle and features the letter 'C.'

    This spoon features some hallmarks that I don't recognize as well as a "NICKEL SILVER" stamp.

    The Canadian issue knife features the letter 'C' as well as a "STAINLESS" stamp.

    This clasp knife was made by George Wostenholm & Son, Limited of Sheffield, England.

    Canadian Washroll Display 12_geo11

    A 2oz. tin of foot powder packed by R & C Ltd.

    Canadian Washroll Display 13_rc_10

    The tin itself was manufactured by the Metal Box Company, Limited of London. I think the '12' refers to the factory number.

    Canadian Washroll Display 14_met10

    The washroll itself was made by Pall Mall Specialties of Montreal in 1942. This example is made of twill material in the distinctive Canadian shade of pale, greenish khaki authorized around 1933-35.
