Hi all,

Very interesting post from a good many years ago.
Would be a great idea to put a "sticky" on it and add upon with newer information on manufacturers codes (and have somebody keep it up to date => Dom K.?).
I have added a couple here for the British "Jerry" can Manufacturers - 1941 to 1945 .
F&L : Fisher & Ludlow, Birmingham UK
RTMP : Still under debate / search; see viewtopic.php?f=37&t=305269
UPDATE: now confirmed as Richard Thomas Metal Products/Pressings of Swansea - South Wales
AMC : Austin Motor Company (?)
"Triangle with point down" with PSC inside triangle: Pressed Steel Cowley
RTB : Richard Thomas & Baldwins, Wales UK (post-war); found in combination with CP&F

ABL : unknown in combination with W/I\D and year otherwise possibly Armee Belge - Belgisch Leger = Belgian Army

Russakov
S.A. Jr. Toys
USSPC-B

Hey, all. I'm currently sporting a can marked USMC stamped (1.5") on the lower side. The filler is smaller cam type, so I'm thinking actually water can. Empty weight and construction feels appropriate for older manufacture. Thoughts please? (not able to post photos)
Thanks, Eddie

Just an update to the list ... E.W.B. (E.W. Bliss Ltd, Derby) and R.T.M.P (Richard Thomas Metal Pressings of Swansea) and yes I know the debate about RTMP but the other argument doesn't really stack up (IMV).

Dom K is correct in identifying CONCO as H.D. Conkey Company.
Here is a link to some of their Company newsletters: viewtopic.php?f=37&t=230794
