Wehrmacht Water Jerrycan 1941


Wehrmacht 20 Liter Water Jerrycan (Wasser Kanister). The classic 'Jerry' can design was originally adopted by the German Armed forces around 1937 and was so successful that the allies valued captured cans and based their own on the same design. Each side of the can has a large impressed strength reinforcing 'X'. This is a scarce and hard to find model jerrycan intended for water, marked on top with 'Wasser 20l' (Water 20 liters) and 'Wehrmacht' 1941. The jerrycan is nicely maker marked with 'ABP' indicating production by the 'Ambi Budd Presswerke' from Berlin. Water jerrycans are normally marked with a white cross so they wouldn't be mixed up with fuel jerrycans. Unfortunately this one has been repainted once in a period looking grey colour, see photos. Rare and hard to find water jerrycan in good uncleaned condition as found, nice original example! 

Shipping: due to the size and weight we will ship this jerrycan only to countries inside the Euro-zone. All other countries after consultation only.
