Anyone know what these boxes are for?

K13 or Dingerr will know.
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.
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.
Agreed FFE5/00 may refer to date boxes no longer used for ammo.
I get lettering as follws:
AD 53 GE - Number plate for vehicle?
Even Googling Military boxes drew a blank, and there's tons of pics!
Boxes for storing Challenger 2 obturator rings.....if they are still separate?

It's for keeping Pandoras in.
If they are in Danny Nightingales shed - then who knows what's in there!
They are square not rectangular.
Can we now have a picture of a box open! (fnarr)
Not me, I don't count boxes
Are you selling them? If so they are clearly 'SAS/PARA/RM Special Forces Storage Containers Used In Afganistan/Iraq' and worth a fair bob or two on FleaBay.
The shade/tone of brown doesn't quite look right for UK boxes - seems to be more 'mercan in colour imho.
There's a brown line almost as if a tape seal has been in place at each end, can see in on top of lid and more clearly at end of lid
That's £120 consultation fee + VAT.
Separate names with a comma.
