Hi Guys can any of you help.

 

I have a metal Ammo box measuring approx 19"x 8"x 8" with two metal side handles.

 

It's embosed P59 MK2 G & M.L. 1945 on the top.

 

What would have been in it and is it British or American?

Sounds like a 2 inch morter ammo box, but it is definitley British. Not sure who G & M.L. were, as these boxes were made by hundreds of small manufacturers, like Jerry can production. These boxes were frequently used as tool boxes both in the Army and Civilians after the war, and sometimes had a modification for a padlock.

Paul,

 

I know this thread on HMVF is 5 years old But I was wondering if you still have the P59 box and wanted to sell it? I've been looking for a P59 ammo box.

 

kind regards,
