WW2 Dated R.A.F. H51 Ammunition Box

Code: SOLD-1062

SOLD
Wooden ammunition box approx. 40 x 25 x 12cm. Metal reinforced corners. Blue paint finish and stencilled 'W.O SAYERS, R.A.F. LEEMING'. Further marks faintly visible beneath this paint 'MK.1 CTN (carton?), 22??' I believe this would have been used to carry .303 small arms ammunition at the base. RAF Leeming was handed over to No 6 (RCAF) Bomber Group iin 1942 and was home, firstly to 405 (Vancouver) and 408 (Goose) Sqns before 427 (Lion) and 429 (Bison) Sqns from 1943 to 1945. Shows use and wear but in good solid condition. Excellent for displays or re-enactment. Stock code M18499.
