    3 CMG? Canteen/Carrier Empty 3 CMG? Canteen/Carrier

    Hey guys,
    A friend of my dad's dropped this off at the house for me. He bought it surplus back when he was a teenager to use for camping and was going to throw it out. He knows I collect so he gave it to me. The best marked canteen carrier I have come across, makers mark, dated, C broadarrow on both the harness and the strap.
    My question is on the other markings. It looks like its marked 3 CMG, 23 Canadian Machine Gun corps? Was it typical to use the CMG abbreviation versus CMGC? Anyone see it differently than I do?

    3 CMG? Canteen/Carrier Empty Water Bottle

    The Water Bottle is WWII manufacture. These carriers were used from the Great War until the early part of WWII, so several different markings and stamps are not uncommon.
