1960's British .30 cal ammo box BS colour code.

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm after the BS paint code for the lighter brown british post war (1960's) .30cal ammo box. As used in ferrets etc..

 

Any help would be great.

 

Cheers.

Alex

Alex I think I have used "Service brown BSC381C 499" on ammo boxes. A close civilian match was "Conker" but can't remember the make.

Alex I would just wait & see what others have to say before you rush out & get some mixed. I'm just concerned that you said "lighter brown".

Clive,

 

You could be right after a little web search of Bs381C 499 I think that's the dark brown that is used on the ammo boxes you see for 7.62, 5.56 & 105mm etc.... I should have posted a picture really to avoid any confusion. I will post one today if I get a chance.

 

Cheers

Alex

 

P.s Clive you should have a picture of the .30 box (and the gun linkage). It was my turret you where photographing at Evesham this year.
