WW2 Japanese Army Type 99 Water Bottle
A WW2 Imperial Japanese Army Type 99 enlisted mans / NCO’s water bottle. The water bottle has the cork and aluminium ‘Model C’ stopper. The body of the canteen still retains most of its original paint and is without holes. The bottle is dated for ‘Showa 16’ (1941).
The bottle is housed in a ‘Model C’ harness which was an all webbing version without the leather and buckles of the previous Model B variant. The stopper cord has had a field repair and been replace by string.
Nice field used example.
