Description
A metal canteen (a) (19.3cmx12cm widex6.5cm depth) with an army-green, felt-lined, canvas jacket (b) and a plastic, screw-on lid. The body is wider at the top and narrows down at the bottom; there is a shaped metal piece fitted in the bottom of the jacket; it is shaped to fit the canteen, which fits in snugly. The canteen is a typical army surplus store canteen. The plastic, screw-on top has a cork liner and a metal chain attached by a small bolt which connects to the neck of the canteen. The insulated canvas jacket has an opening at the top for the lid, two flaps on the top which can be opened or closed by metal keepers. The front of the jacket has the letters “U.S.” stamped in black ink. On the back, 5.0cm from the top, there is a piece of heavy, corded cotton looped over and sewn down, with a metal piece fitted through the open part, presumably for attaching the canteen to a belt or strap.

Description
A cylindrical canvas bag, tan/gold coloured with a patch of lightweight, cream-coloured canvas (38.0cmx 31.0cm wide) hand sewn on over a large hole. One round piece of lightweight, cream-coloured canvas (28.0cm radius) is sewn on the bottom; attached to this is a rectangular piece of canvas folded over and stitched, creating a handle. On the top of the bag there are twelve metal grommets, through which a corded rope is threaded through creating a drawstring for closure. The cord is loop-knotted and there are brass-coloured metal pieces clamped on the folded-over ends to prevent them from unravelling. The manufacturer’s name is obliterated by the patch covering the hole; visible: “RY” underneath that “RES LTD” , underneath that “R B C”. On the opposite side of the patch, on the sewn seam, is a (Ken Jones’s monogram) “K” with a “J” leading off the top of the “K” so it is higher than the K, in black indelible ink. This is repeated below the patch, but the “J” is partially covered by the patch. Near this, printed horizontally with black ink “KEN. JONES,” underneath that “GOLDEN, B.C.,” and underneath that “CANADA.”. This is repeated on the other side, except for “CANADA”, but is very faded.
