A World War II Chinese Army aluminum canteen, one of captured stocks of the canteens that were reissued by the Japanese Navy to their own personnel. The grommets on the cover show rust, and the original lace tie for the cover is gone. There are multiple Chinese kanji visible on the aluminum stopper. The cover has typical spots, and a number in Japanese, likely a unit number, is painted on the cover. The aluminum body is dented on both sides.
