Remembered Today:

Bottle, water, carrier---Pattern ID


Recommended Posts



This is my first venture into British Army equipment.

The top of the bottle is lipped, while the base is flat.

The carrier is made of leather straps (about 4 mm thick x 15 mm wide) riveted together.

The two metal rings are non-magnetic (brass ?).

There is a jury-rigged leather strap (thin) attached to the top cross-strap that wraps around the spout and attaches to the cross-strap at the rear.

This thin leather wrapping is quite fragile, so I cannot unwind it to check for stamps on the underside of the carrier.

I cannot tell what pattern carrier this may be, so what do the equipment collectors think ?
