    Can anyone help me ID the items in these photos?. Owner identifies this as "Metal Missile Ammo Case in Basket Pack from 1960's Vietnam War", I have no idea what they are and have not been able to find any photographic examples.

    THanks Ned, that was a bit too easy to find!!! I went and made it all complicated instead of just googling the frigging numpers stencled on the caniseter...

    They are common to find because they are swiss army surplus containers, they originally carried powder charges for a 10,5 cm Howitzer.
    Post war, i think 1970's.
    They can be found with a badly faked WaA stamp, so beware.
