    B166 ii

    I picked up a box today to add to the collection. It's a B166 ll 1943 by MPB and is marked up I believe original as a mortar box but the only one I see on the closed consolidated list is as a piat box.20160206_175207.jpg20160206_175646.jpg20160206_175300.jpg

    It is by far the most common 3" Mortar box and was used until 81mm Mortar was introduced, mainly packed in a B 192.
