Boer War British Soldier's Tea and Coffee Canteen.
I have been told that this canteen is from the Boer War period, however it has also been indicated to me by another source that these canteens were used up until the First World War.
The canteen is encased in Bridal Back leather that has become very hard and brittle from age of which the leather lid is missing.
The canteen and cup is made out of tin which is slightly rusted.
The cup, with a flip-out handle, fits inside the canteen in which water is boiled.
There are no visible markings on this item.
It is 16cm. high and 12cm. in diameter.
