The first canteen is interesting though most certainly it was not that colour when issued - I wonder what the 'A' is supposed to represent. I wondered at first if it was a Militia/ Volunteer  bottle but then I guess they would not have never been issued with such - being campaign equipage ?

The second ebay bottle is most certainly a repro as I used to belong to the 28th before it folded about 2 years ago. The stencilled lettering and LC for light company is identical to one I had before I repainted it. I have already contacted the seller with this information as he professes to know nothing about it. It was still being listed as ' Napoleonic/Crimean ' yesterday though !
