I recommend a good post on a good blog to you on Wednesday, then last night I get a note from Stephen AKA cheetah185, author of the In my own time wargaming blog, that the “War and Game” blog has been deleted by its authors! I checked the links myself today and he’s right!

Oh well, sorry everyone. Here’s what Wikipedia has about the Jerrycan. You see? You’re still learning something from my blog!

I feel terrible that I don’t check up on the War and Game blog more often. It’s a great historical blog and archive. I’m glad I did catch up with it last week, as it recently had a great little post all about the Wehrmachtskanister – or what the Allies called the “jerrycan”. Go read about its brilliant design and why the Allies copied it!
