    A12 1940

    Hi

    Didn't find pics of an A12 box so posted these. This was on a certain auction website.
    Early date and what looks to be rubber handles.

    Its just a rubber/plastic tube around the steel to cushion fingers carrying a heavy load.

    I say looks because webbing material was also used on early dated boxes.

    It is a shame that the consolidated list isn't updated with the new posts, but I guess a lot of work or else the threads automatically lock as know this is the case on some forums.

    I've posted a couple of A12 boxes before.
    The A series was was for T.W. bombs according to the one quote I could find. I think this means Trench Weapons but happy to be corrected.
