Abstract:

Two models of an experimental polyethylene canteen high and low density were tested to determine their suitability for Marine Corps use. The test items were considered not suitable. It is recommended that 1 the Department of the Army be requested to develop a plastic canteen with cup as a suitable replacement for the standard corrosion resistant steel CRS canteen 2 the Marine Corps participate in the testing of any future canteens and 3 the Marine Corps utilize the present CRS canteen with cup until a suitable replacement is developed.
