Hi David really nice box and always good to see the cases to match rgards Dave
 
Thanks big Dave

Thanks yes realy nice the inlets are mostly missed these days i am very happy there are still there most of this boxes were used after the war as tool boxes or fire wood and often there are overpainted horrible !!!:tinysmile_fatgrin_t


wbr David
 
Are you sure that the cases are 155? would it be possibel that the caliber is 15 cm? have you find a date on the wooden box? Ben
 
yes you are right it was a mistake

yes fjordhouse you are right its for the 15 cm fieldgun it was a writting mistake in the previous post !
thanks

No there are no markings on the box even the packing sticker is not there !!

best regards David
 
But these are the short cases for the 15 cm howitzer. I've never seen a box like this; I only know wicker baskets for the 15 cm cases during WW1 and before. Could it be Reichswehr maybe?
 
there are some stamps on the box too !!

Dear der Feldgraue there are some stamps on the box too one is 1917 the others i dont remember i will post it later !!
i have seen a nearly equal box for the 21 cm Mortar too on some pictures when i find it i will post the pic !!

Thanks best regards David
 
Hi Dave,

ok, would be interesting to see the pics, because I only know about the wicker baskets. So another item to look at :)
