WWII German Ammunition Box Gallery
Wooden boxes were used to transport ammunition to various depots and places in the field. Wood was ideal since it was light, cheap to manufacture and could not produce sparks when in contact with other objects.
Original wood box once used to store three rounds of 7,5 cm Kw.K. 40 ammunition. This type of ammunition was used on long barreled ( L/48 ) 7,5cm gun as in later models of Pz IV and Stug III. This example is missing pieces of wood at the small ends and interior supporting blocks for the rounds. (kwk40)
