    The thing is cool, but not very practible.
    Should have had it's own pouch. Snagging foliage and vines is never a good idea..

    It's just too complicated as a design; that's why it it now Kaput !!

    Better Austrian canteens followed this type, thankfully.
    Have a couple of the newer ones that  I use mainly for hiking and camping ..
    I like metal canteens..

    I hadn't realized that the Austrians had used this complicated pattern. Are they very scarce to find? I have the German and South African versions.

    Sorry - I just realized I had posted this before...

    I found a nice pic of this canteen in use during the Prague Spring when Austrian army was on alert.

    Found a nice Austrian post war made tanker holster for the Colt 1911, or as we called it P11.

    Nice! This is a great addition to anybody, like you Wink, who has otherwise complete tanker uniforms. Now you just need a M1911 Wink

    I have one of these as well. Years ago an Austrian eBay seller had a bunch of them in one auction. 6 or maybe 9!! I bid and was outbid at the last second. I asked the seller if he could put me in touch with the buyer. I wound up with one for a reasonable price.

    Is there an easy way to tell the difference between the holster for the M1911 and the P-1 (aka P-38)?

    Honestly I never saw a tanker holster for the P-38. The standard P-38 holster
    looked different than the WWII one. The 1911 holster lookd pretty much like the US type one.

    OK, so then there probably is no holster for the P-1.  I simply assumed there was.  Heh... now I have to get a M1911 to complete my display Wink
