Hey guys,

I need some help. I have a good friend that has a WWII canteen A.K.A. M-1917 canteen.
There is a name and number on the canteen,is there anyway to find the person who owned the canteen. Are there records, or a search I can do on the name or number?

I think you can search the name or number through the war registry. Is it belonging to US or Britsh or German? or any other country?
So you search the War registry? I think you can call the US army hotline to direct you there! Because I am not in America, I can't help you much!
