Mystery metal vehicle? Box

Recommended Posts

Just in the workshop going through, trunks, boxes and packing cases and am a bit stuck on a box.

The box is of similar manufacture to Universal Carrier boxes but has no markings.

It appears that it would have had the lock on the top with fold down front door and shelf.

Does anyone have an idea?

Looks like a document holder of some sort, we had one on the bridge that held about 5 A4 folders but was ready to be thrown over board if needed

Not a naval document dump box. To light and no holes in it, so it woud float.

Doubt it would float the lid is not watertight. Looks more like a locker fitted under truck bodies.

It was the internal layout which brought the Naval box to mind, wasn't think of it being that, more the documents being held there

The original Naval document dump boxs are like small safes, a two man lift with four holes in the bottom which which are on quick release bases , handles on the side plus other holes to allow quick sinking. I had a couple that I used as floor safes.
