Five boxes are 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.
The box in our collection is dated 1945, however it is
possible that earlier dates may be found. This style of box would
be found late war and post war, possibly Korea.
Some typical uses of this box are:
- 3 inch Mortar Rounds (6 per box)
- No. 73 Anti-Tank Grenades (10 per box)
- No. 77 Grenades (34 per box)
- No. 79 Grenades (24 per box)
Photo 2 shows the box in our collection which all measurements were based on.
Photo 3 shows the original WWII colour of the box. This
colour was used on the inside and outside of the box, and is very close
to Modelmaster Euro Dark Green No. 1764.
The British standard service colour was changed some time in 1944 to
No. 2 Camouflage Brown. From late 1944 onward, both colours (Dark
Bronze Green and No. 2 Camouflage Brown) could be found in service.
