    It is unlikely. I see no indication of this being from the navy (no "eagle M" stamp). I don't think the navy used this type of ammo carrier either. Even if it did have the Eagle M navy stamp it could just as easily be from a coastal emplacement or a surface ship. It is most likely from a land-based artillery piece. Nice helmet by the way.

    It is navy, another member of the forum has one like this with a round aswell, used on early uboats and torpedo boats. Backstory is that its from one of the uboats captured at portsmouth. Also theres an eagle stamp with 3 letters under it. It spells, MoM the oM is hard to figure out put it def has an M on it. ALso ive seen pictures of the round carriers used on u-boats and theyre exactly the same as this one. Same stickers etc.

    Way to much money you can find these normally for 100 to 150 euros and sometime less ,As i put before alot were used for coastal Artillery units so alot can be found in Finland and Norway etc

    I have to agree, you did over pay for its condition.

    Darnet! I do admit I love the smell of the inside, smeels like oil and ocean. Wondering how the heck it could have gotten so badly battered up.
