This is a German Soldier's M1907 Water Bottle with most of its original light blue Paint work clear to see all over the bottle but is missing its top.The paint still on it makes it a very nice item but is a rare pattern to find in this colour i have been told its Naval but i can not confirm it. The bottle has a couple of pin prick rust holes it is not very rusty at all but is still very solid it is in very nice condition for a relic with lots of original colour and has been well cleaned perfect for display or any collection. The bottle was recovered in 2013 from Bourlon Woods the November 1917 battle part of the Allied Cambrai offensive.
The attack on the Bourlon Woods was an operation that would be carried out by the Third Army under General Julian Byng in order to relieve pressure on the French front. The offensive consisted of an assault against the Germans’s on the Hindenburg line along a 10-mile (16-km) front some 8 miles (13 km) west of Cambrai. Nineteen British divisions were assembled for the offensive, supported by tanks (476 in all, of which about 378 were fighting tanks; the rest were supply and service vehicles) and five horsed Cavalry divisions. The attack lasted from the 20th November 1917 until 6th December 1917.
