Sorry, this sort of tank. Came with a load of stuff in the last container. Clearly marked 1945.

Any ideas on what it fits?



Hi Ken,


I think this is a container, converted into a tank. The writing on it looks to refer to Radford Ordnance Works, in the USA, they made smokeless powder. I can just make out the word "flashless" on the container and think that it must have been for gun powder, hence the large cap.

Thankyou for your help. It says "non flashless" which confused me as well.

I never thought of it having been converted from something, but that does explain 'how' the outlet appears to be in the middle of the those stencilled marks.

Makes sense now - thanks again.
