Dutch Royal Army Canteen Cover 80s

NSN : 8465-17-052-9696

From the blog “Mess Kits and Canteens”:

In the 1980s, the Koninklijke Landmacht began to issue rubberized web gear. With the Cold War in full swing, the rubberized web gear could be decontaminated in the event of a chemical attack. Decon would be nearly impossible with canvas webbing. The soldiers referred to this equipment as “Playmobil,” after the famous line of children’s toys.
