M1878 Canteen

The M1878 Canteen replaced the old civil war pattern though in reality it was a modified pattern with a new cover and a U.S. stencilled on the side.  The strap was made of leather with adjustable hooks and two snap hooks to fasten it to the canteen.  This was to set the new president with a small modification in 1885 to the strap so the trooper could fasten it to his saddle.  It served through the Spanish American War until its replacement in 1910.

UK shipment is either by Royal Mail or Parcelforce, if your order is too long for these services then it will be sent via DHL, for instance Inert Muskets.  There is an addition cost of this and an invoice will be sent.

We are not mind readers and can accommodate urgent orders, but we need to know at the time or ordering,  we keep getting requests for urgent items ordered and at 2 days to go before it is needed are told that the order is urgent!!!!

We are in a difficult economic climate with low demand for some products, so do not keep vast amounts of any item.

Any item which is urgent has a 4 week timescale to source if not in stock.  Please bear this in mind.
