I tried to inform myself about the British military canteen.
And with every word I read about it I got more and more confused.

Does BCB stand for Big Confusion Bottle? :confused2:

Can anybody tell me please if the currently produced original issued Osprey 58 pattern bottle fits well into the stainless steel crusader mug?

I mean the crusader mug under the bottle of course.

In which pouches does it fit?

I mean that here:

Thank you very much for the info!

This cup fits as well into the issued folding hexamine stove , isn't it?


Does the DPM PLCE utility / waterbottle pouch have Molle straps at the back?

uk mainly in the Midlands though
The Water bottle does fit into various pouches some molle (Osprey/Vertus) some standard PLCE

Pouches it fits into are:
Water bottle pouch closed (rectangular one)
Utility pouch
Water water bottle open pouch (looks similar to the US canteen pouch)
LMG 100 round pouch (loads of room to spare)
Dump pouch
Roll up dump pouch

Yes those two go together like peas and carrots and the pouch is this one https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENUINE-...174130?hash=item25fb50eab2:g:JD8AAOSwkBZanBNy

You can also get the burner which goes with the set and all fits in the pouch as seen here https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BRITISH-...925335?hash=item519ea466d7:g:KbIAAOSwYvFZJnfr
