Thanks for your reply from Picardie :D
Sorry for the few lines below in french

Merci à toi Léon
Bravo pour tes recherches et ton travail de vulgarisation sur le gerrycan, j'avais créé un site il y a maintenant longtemps qui s'appelait jeeptools et j'avais commencé à répertorier des fabricants. Un travail de romain et à l'époque n'ayant pas la jeep j'avais fini par laisser tombé.
