Thanks po r the post ..the US Jerry can will have 3 rows on the bottom  ..the first row is standard and confirms the item confirms to a pattern ..the second is the manufacturer ..the third will have 20 -5-and the year

That's 20 litres -5 gallons - 1942 in your instance

The QMC is Quater  Master Company ...US for United States ..

The early US ones had a round screw in cap ..the later ones  the spout from the original design ..

Icc -5 is the pattern conformity

Wheeling are the manufacturer 

20 litres / 5 and a quarter gallons work 1942 

the info will be in a oval shield ,

The US round next has a flexible funnel that screws in and was  used  in pouring ..in battle conditions however these weren't used and 1t caused a lot of wastage so the design was dropped and reverted to The original neck .

The Jerry cans were used on every vehicle and you will see on the  back of every jeep .value varies on condition and rarity ..

Post a picture of the condition .
