Ok i'll put some backround to it first. So i go and buy a ton of WWII stuff off ebay helemets,canteens,canteen cups/covers,footlocker, and other stuff all from African theatre and european theatre. Well it all arrives and its a footlocker with Three helemets one medic helemet american, one regular helmet american, and a african campaign helemt. Then three canteens one african two european. Both european ones were in cloth covers and then cups around them. Then i had a backpack and some other things all for about 100$. Anyways i get them and i pull one of the canteens out of its cover and it comes out with ease. Then i pull the other out and i look inside the cover and theres a canteen cup inside it. So after about 5 minutes of tugging the cup comes out and when i look at it i was amazed all over the cup was names of places this soldeir had gone all carved in with a knife he also had his name and unit number but i have never found anything. Heres all the stuff carved on the canteen cup: Pompei,Rome,Maddeloni,Africa,Algira,Sicily,Oran,Philaipa,Malta,Naples,Otto,Aversa,Bagnola,Mt.Combila,Strait Of Mafisina,Pantelleria,Caserta,Arzew,Italy,Casablanca,Isle of Capree.
