    In Australian Army Service these were used for transporting Proof Samples. The Box came with a tin plate liner with a removable lid. The lid sealed into a groove in the liner filled with luting. 8140-66-030-1958
    Any Live or Recovered ordnance shown in my posts was dealt with accordingly by EOD personnel (usually me)

    any live or dug ordnance. small arms ammunition etc in my posts have been dealt with accordingly

    I just came across a 1942 dated C190 I in its original grey paint and original labels on saying it held 28 linked HV rounds for the 2-Pounder QF gun.
