    Default 75mm Pack Howitzer Smoke & HE metal containers and paper tubes

    Good day you all!
    Today i was fortunate to find 2 different types of containers for the 75mm..
    Both metal tubes have inside the paper container.
    One set is for SMOKE and the other for HE.
    Stencil outside dated July and August 1945.. The paper tubes dont have dates.

    Is this an actual war time material or considered post war ??




    i am thinking to use these original cardboard tubes to make a clover leaf 3 round ammo box for the 75mm..
    i do have a pair of these laying around...(clover leaf)




    (yes these on the back are metal 40mm US Navy Bofors casings.. 1944 dated!!
    if anyone interested let me know!)
