Rare P1871 British, Victorian Era, Zulu war canteen. Made of wood (Beech and Ash), it had two brass straps, which are now missing. It has a wide mouth spout, which had a bronze stopper, topped with a large screw fitting (stopper is missing). What makes this canteen unique is the carved lettering on the side: "9NMN3rB" with "TB" carved underneath. "9th Natal Mounted Natives 3rd Battalion."  The "TB" obviously refers to the soldier. (kb10065) $375.
