included in set.
These ammunition boxes are seen in period photos
as extra stowage on various allied armoured vehicles. These boxes
are easily distinguishable from other boxes by the distinct pattern on
the lid and sides.

possible that earlier dates may be found. This style of box would
be found late war and post war, possibly Korea.
