    Blasting Caps / Detonators

    Hello.
    A friend find this this week at work.
    He ask me what this is, I say that must be british Detonators.

    Are this Detonators and is this an Standard plastic Container for them or from any other?

    Unless these have been found in a professional capacity, which should be declared, I suspect you could be running foul of the forum's guidelines.

    The container is known as "Magazine, Detonator, Mark II" and is of SOE design origin.

    Their condition appears to be excellent when you consider that they are of WW2 origin. Without seeing them complete - I don't see wires in the photos - I suspect that they are plain (igniferous) detonators, possibly of the No 27 design.
    Any live or dug ordnance shown in my posts has been dealt with accordingly by eod personel
