You are bidding on a SUPERB example of a WW2 German Wehrmacht Gebirgsjager / Medical M31 Canteen & Straps!
The M31 canteen was based on the M1893 and M1907 canteen which were used throughout WW1.These were originally manufactured in aluminum, but as aluminum was required for use in other equipment (aircraft, for example), they were then re-designed to be manufactured in steel.
Made of aluminum with a felt covering, this mid war aluminum canteen is in EXCELLENT condition for it’s age. There is no major corrosion or damage, and all maker marks are present! The cap is marked, “SSL 42”, while the bottle and felt cover are marked “SSL 43”. Sadly, the leather strap has a couple of breaks. A PERFECT addition to any collection or display!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

Payment should be made within 7 business days at the end of the auction unless buyer contacts me for other arrangements. I accept all forms of payment.
——————- SHIPPING —————–
My goal is to ship within 7 days from auction end. However, depending on circumstances, it may take up to an additional 1 week from receipt of confirmed payment. If you need it shipped sooner, please let me know and I will do our best to accommodate.
——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–
Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.
——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
