Boxes & Crates
Three variations of tin. At left, a camo tin dated 1938. This housed the tool kit shown on the "Pioneer" page. The middle tin is steel & the right hand one, aluminium. Notice variations of both locking mechanism & hinge design..
From the Picattinny
Dictionary completed in 1958. The box held what is known as ZŁndladung
or "Booster Charges." According to the dictionary
"The purpose of this detonator was to pick up the shock wave due to
the explosion of the fuze detonator to amplify the effect of the shock
wave and in turn to detonate the main booster charge." I'm
assuming these were used with HE bombs dropped from aircraft. Your
box held 40 such boosters.
