    Here is a sampling of Trench Art canteens from the Spanish American War era to WW2.

    The central canteen is from the Spanish American War era. It has a canvas cover that has been decorated with a central patriotic shield design. The artwork has been added to both sides of the canteen.

    Upper left is a US WW1 aluminum canteen that has been engraved with oak leaves and branches on one side and a piece of fruit on the other.

    Upper right is a WW2 captured Japanese canteen that has ben engraved with a local "Luzon" scene on one side and a presentation on the back.

    All three represent soldier or artist handiwork in turning WAR REFUSE into decorative souvenirs of service.

    Reproduction of these images in any form is prohibited.

      Looks like the spanish civil war one would of had a strap on it
    12. scottvez scottvez, 7 years ago
      The threaded cap became a standard for US canteens around WW1 (and continues today).

      I find it interesting that SOME WW2 Japanese canteens still have a cork seal (like the one pictured).
