Bulgarian Coconut Canteen

The Bulgarian Coconut Canteen is a WWII-era canteen from the Bulgarian Army. With the war raging during World War II, raw materials like wool were in short supply so the German army began to insulate their canteens with bamboo. After seeing how successful the German army was with bamboo insulated canteens, the Bulgarian army copied the design. Commonly referred to as the "coconut" canteen do to the fact that the canteen looks like a coconut from a distance.

The Bulgarian Coconut Canteen is an authentic WWII-era canteen issued by the Bulgarian Army. Taking a page from the German army, the Bulgarian Army used pressed bamboo to line and insulate the exterior of their canteens. With the use of bamboo to insulate the canteen instead of wool fabric, the army could use wool for uniforms where it was both in short supply and necessary for production.

With the popularity of WWII re-enacting, this Bulgarian Army canteen is a must-have. While the issuance of this style of canteen began with the German Afrika Corps, it soon became the standard issue canteen throughout the remainder of the war. Now that we have imported a sizable number of these excellent WWII-era canteens, you can add several to your collection.

  • Authentic Bulgarian Army Canteen
