IJA late model canteen, 1944?

Recommended Posts

Just received this today, stamps and date on the canteen are well defined (Showa 19 = 1944?) and there is a faded stamp on the carrier strap. As I understand, late model canteens had no leather straps or metal buckles on the carrier. Any help learning more would be appreciated!

Yes Matt you do have a late war canteen and you are right about the strap and buckles, and your canteen was made by Ikeda Aluminum in Osaka.
