One for the really old and bold. The attached photos show a "Water Carrier" that was with my late fathers odds and sods. He obviously kept it for a reason, but I have no idea why. I do know that he was in India (NWF) with 1 Devons prior to WW2, then moved with the Regt to Burma via Ceylon. When in Burma he was "Wounded" or taken ill and shipped back to UK, he was then posted to another Infantry Regt for the rest of the war moving through Europe to end up at Bremen. Then post WW2 decided he'd had enough and left. Fast Forward to 1953 (ish), re-enlists into RASC, and off to Suez during the little shindig there. So basically the question is does the water thing date from his time in India/Burma, or Suez. There are no identifying marks on it, although its obvioulsy been well used, the writing on one side says: "TO BE WELL WASHED WITH SOAP" "AND WATER BEFORE USING" Other Side says: "TO BE SOAKED IN WATER FOR (48?) HOURS BEFORE ???????" Not sure why pics arent displaying.
