Item Description

Original Item: One-of-a-kind. USMC Pacific Theatre “bring back” material are some of the most sought after military collectibles on the market today. This incredible example perfectly echo’s the sentiment of the “Leathernecks” during their harrowing plight through the Pacific Island hoping facing ferrous resistance from entrenched Japanese forces.

This is standard Imperial Japanese Army aluminum WW2 canteen that was captured by an American Marine Corps member during WWII, who engraved it and brought back to the United States as a war trophy.

The canteen reads:

FROM THE HALLS
OF
MONTEZUMA
TO
THE SHORES OF TRIPOLI
HELL, -.

GUADALCANAL IS.
AIGUST 7TH
