    British wooden box? Ammo related??

    Me again,

    This time I don't have the exact dimensions since I spotted this wodden box at a local charity shop, But I estimate it to be about 90cm long and 25 cm high and 25cm wide. it's very well made (too much may be for an ammo box) and there's a red square inspector type ink stamp at the bottom, and that's pretty it. I suppose it was repainted at some point.

    Any idea's welcome.

    it does have some ammunition box features but I think it is more likely for equipment
    is there a date and makers code impressed into the base?

    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.

    Don't think its British and is a bit to fancy for Ammunition …

    I would guess a box for equipment, and by the looks of the hinges and the corner protectors, possibly German. Cheers, Bruce.
