CANTEEN – MEDICAL ORDERLY

I could not resist buying this nifty Medical Orderly’s (Medizinisch Ordentlich) Canteen, not only due to its subject matter, but because of its excellent condition. The Medical Orderly’s (Medizinisch Ordentlich) Canteen still has the bulk of its olive green wool surface intact. Some moth nips are evident, which is not surprising for a more than one-hundred-year-old item with a wool finish! [Not to mention that canteens usually received hard use at the front lines].

The canteen has many brown leather straps, which are all intact, as are the buckles that allowed the canteen to be removed and filled up when necessary. One of the straps on the Medical Orderly’s (Medizinisch Ordentlich) Canteen is stamped for its manufacturer, “Herm. Flohr Cöln (Cologne),” and the date it was made, “1915.”

The Medical Orderly’s (Medizinisch Ordentlich) Canteen’s top features a tin cup with which the orderly could offer water to his patients. This well-maintained Medical Orderly’s (Medizinisch Ordentlich) Canteen can make a lovely item to add to a display, or may be displayed on its own.
