    Kar = Karabiner. I have never seen this kind of marking but no doubt it was to identify rifle ammunition. NH

    Ill go with a box for rifle/carbine ammo as well, as the designation of the German main battle rifle was 'Karabiner 98 Kurz' or abbreviated 'Kar98k.'

    It makes sense to mark ammo cans like this one. In the heat of battle it would be deadly to mix up ammo cans and deliver the wrong type to the front! Still, I do not know if this was a Third Reich era marking. Certainly, the ammo can itself looks to be period.

    All are coming from France, used by French Army post WWII ?

    The French army used much German equipment post war (along with older prewar French stuff and wartime supplied British and US equipment) before replacing it with new French equipment-the other ammo cases are marked for Machinen Gewehr 'machine gun' and Machinen Pistole 'sub machine gun'.

    I wonder if the Kar marked can was filled with steel-cased laquered ammo and so to be only used with rifles,I believe there was a problem with it used in MG`s ?

    MG ammo would be in link belts, rifle in 5 round charger clips.

    Don't know about that, I have a complete box (300 rounds) with steel cased laquered ammo, marke "nur für MG" , and a couple of boxed steel-laquered "Leuchtspur" .....
