These are original, new and unissued, Oil Bottles (or 'Cans') M.G. Mk3, Canadian Pattern.
These oil bottles were produced in at least 9 different versions, all under the same name and apparently the same part number, for issue primarily with the .303" Bren Light Machine Gun, although they were also standard issue for a number of other weapons including the 2" Mortar, and an alternative issue for Vickers MMGs and other machine guns.
version is one of the Canadian Pattern bottles. Made in Canada primarily
for Canadian Brens, they may also be found on general issue to any of
the Commonwealth Forces. These bottles are made from an opaque light grey, hard and shiny plastic. Other than the material these are of almost identical design to the green plastic version elsewhere on the website.
Never the most robust version of these oil bottles, these are often found to be cracked or distorted. These ones however are in excellent condition.
