Interesting. I am familliar with the leather harness on the center bottle, but the others are unusual to me. Are they variations? Or ,as you said, for mountain troops?

Medical troops also carried large water bottle variations, or sometimes carried two bottles.

DAK generally had the same size, I believe, but the cups were constructed of either standard aluminum, wood (thinner cup), or bakelite (yes, bakelite. a buddy of mine just ubtained such a piece)

Bakelite eh?
Does any one know what sort of material bakelite was. I've heard it was a primitive type of plastic, but was it actualy a petro-chemical?

don't know, maybe chemicals and plastic. I know it's a hobby in itself and can be expensive
