Boer War RCR Water Bottle

Ref: 6321

SOLD

Very scarce Boer War period 1899 pattern water bottle carrier marked to the Royal Canadian Regiment. This item is scarce owing to its unpopularity with Canadian soldiers who hastily discarded them in favour of the British pattern canteen. The leather carrier is designed to accommodate a standard commercially-produced glass mineral water bottle of the era (original one is included although has a piece chipped off the lip.) The bottom is stamped RCR and also features the last three digits of the regimental number, so this piece could be researched to identify the owner. 

Dimensions: 8.5"x2.5"
