This WW2 Japanese canteen was captured in Luzon (Phillipines) probably during 1945.

The canteen's green paint was stripped off years ago.

The front of the canteen has been adorned with a native house and "LUZON". The back is engraved with "Lillian, Raymond, Barbara" within a heart.

The canteen retains the original cork stopper and has maker marks on the bottom.
