    Default Japanese wooden ammo box, metal lining, what for?

    Hi, I was given this box the other day. Wooden with metal lining, measures 165x498x203mm, japanese? writing on the lid and (characteristic?) Circular damage in one spot.

    I think it is for some type of fuze, does anyone know?
    Cheers.
