    M1 Box

    Odd quantity too. Presumably 7 x 48 round cartons.

    Hello

    I have two of these boxes. My Dad gave me these when I was a teenager back in the 80s, I assume he had got them shortly after he got out of the Service after the War.

    My Wife and I are in the process of moving and all of our things are packed, or in the process of being packed away for the move. Sometime later this week or so, I'll have a go and try and dig them out and post a photo of the other box. They are not in the best of shape, but living here in the US, I have not seen many U.S. M-1 boxes that are marked for the .303" Mk.VIIz Cartridge, so I'm grateful to have these two that I do have.

    I think the WRA lot number is for Winchester Repeating Arms?
    Thanks
