Original U.S. WWII Airborne Paratrooper M1941 Mounted Canteen Cover with Water Bottle

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Originally designed for use by cavalry troops, this cover has become closely associated with Airborne troops. However, it was actually designed for Cavalry- it's official name in the US Army quartermaster catalog is "Cover, Canteen, M1941, Mounted". The covers is essentially the same as the M1910, except that the wire hook used to attach it to pistol and cartridge belts is re-inforced with 5/8" webbing at the top and bottom. There is also a slot in the webbing that holds the hook allowing the cover to be worn on a regular trouser belt or attached to equipment without requiring the mounting eyelets.

This Model 1942 cover is dated 1942 and offered in very good condition. Also included is an M1942 steel canteen water bottle by Vollrath complete with functional screw cap and chain.

A classic Airborne canteen as used by Paratroopers assigned to various Parachute Infantry regiments during World War Two.
