Gday, I picked this chest up this morning at the sunday markets. I didnt know what it was until I opened it and seen the packing diagram. very cool to have the original diagram and packing information.
I wish I had all the contents but I only have one owen gun magazine to put in it.
it has a post war grey paint scheme but you can see it marked clearly under the paint 'CHEST OWEN MACHINE CARBINE MK1. made by GMH in 1941
Was wondering if any one has seen one of these or has one? as I cant find a pic anywhere on google.
feel free to post any owen related pics in this thread as I might get some goodies to fill it
