Response to Your point

ABP (Ambi-Budd Presswerk) is one of the typical markings found in german-made jerrycans. Was there a british brand under the same name? Budd of course was the american company, and at the time had the biggest expertise in metal stamping for car bodies in the world (they developed the body parts, presses and machinery for the Citro├źn Traction). Popular as the jerrycans were, ABP is probably better known for building the Schwimmwagen bodies. An aside of this relation is surely the rare USMC type of jerrrycan, just like the early german version, that could be seen as early as 1941 in the Corps maneuvers in Cuba (think there are some pics too in the Army Louisiana maneuvers of the same year):
