  2. K13 or Dingerr will know.
  3. On a serious note my only guess thanks to Mr Google, is US Army spare parts/tool boxes.

    Edited: My mistake, punched in wrong serial number on box, no hits with the actual number.
  4. Probably once used for storing bangy type stuff judging by the FFE stencil which has been put on the top one. I'm not current with new stuff but the


    might help narrow it down until the likes of Dingerr do a ta da for us.
  5. Agreed FFE5/00 may refer to date boxes no longer used for ammo.

  10. Not me, I don't count boxes ;-)
