    Way to go!
    Two days in electrolysis, softly scrubbing with soap and water to remove all the dirt that was packed in there (the roots were really holding it in there too) and then a paraffin wax boil to seal it all. I think it came out nice!

    My banner nomination has been submitted. Thank you for sharing the photos and the research into this rescued canteen. This story is very compelling and most worthy of banner status for all the reasons stated by other posters here.

    I agree that this is a banner find. Anytime, that you can connect a relic to a specific individual, it's a special thing. When you can actually learn something about that individual, it's even more special.

    Wow! Awesome find and coupled to the story of solider named John Shomin makes it all the more wonderful. I kinda like to think John Shomin has a story to tell from the grave of who they were and the cause they believed in so long ago.
