      Dear Fitz and Larry,

      Wooden canteens are correct for US use. So many were
      ordered during the War that for years afterwards the
      US Army did not contract for more until all remaining
      stocks were issued.

      The first tin issue canteen I have ever seen for
      Regular troops dates to the Mexican War 1846-48.

      All the best,
      S.
