The new pattern, aluminium-plated canteen was introduced in the Greek Army on July 1908. The oval bottle is kidney-shaped cross section with aluminium-capped cork stopper (almost identical to the German M1893) on the tall neck.
A metal retaining chain fixed with one end to the top of the metal cap, while the other end is attached to the reverse of the canteen leather strap.
The leather strap is fastened around the neck with a buckle. The main and the support carrying leather strap, are attached to the lower part of the cover by a metal stud. The metal hook was used to carry the canteen attached to a "D" ring on the belt, or on the second strap of the bredbag leather slot. The gray wool cover of the canteen is fastened along its side by four metal press studs.
The KD canteen is copied from an original in our collection and is a must have item for your Balkans War, 1st WW and Asia Minor Expedition re-enacting kit!
The khakidepot copy can be used for drinking water.
