    Full box of 24 @3 each plus one inert round. You can just see the base of the round in the closest tube.

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

    Restored C219s

    I spent a lot of time researching these markings. Any comments, anybody?

    C219s on vehicle

    I couldn't resist posting this! 1943 Morris-Commercial C9B Self-propelled Bofors gun. Complete with C219 ammunition boxes!

    It's painted in the markings of the 15th LAA Regt., R.A. - the Manx Regiment, which is the highest-scoring LAA unit of the British Army.

    Thanks for posting. Any chance of getting all round views? I've been looking for markings to do my box.

    The stencils were made to my design by Tony of Axholme Signs - www.axholmesigns.co.uk I can recommend his work. I'll get a photo of the end tomorrow. Meanwhile here's the side.

    C219 markings

    Here are clear photos of the side and the end. No markings on the top, as far as I know. The B number is the batch number. I've used a typical number from around 1944-45.
