    A12 box for Livens Projector

    I thought that it might be interesting to see an A12 box marked for the Livens Projector as per the 1943 RAOC pamphlet. It has been overpainted black, but the markings are visible through this. In yellow, as just visible in a couple of places. Would have posted in the Consolidated List of containers, were the A12 thread not closed. 1940 A12 ELX. Should be two circles fixed to the base where the holes are, presumably to wedge the round charges. The image of the charge is from the US manual TM3-325 for Livens Projector M1.
