    A friend of mine bought these a couple days ago and I said I would help him with finding out what they are. I can't say I have seen these before so I need your help:

    I think these might be from an aircraft.

    The ammo belt looks like a NATO standard 7.62mm belt as used in the GPMG, M60 etc.

    The white box is a military item, we have one at work with first aid kits in. I dont know if they have a specific use or if they are just a general purpose lockable box.

    Hi,

    The 2 "german boxes" looks as steel container for "17cm K. 18.i. Mrs. Laf." = (17cm Kanone 18 in Mörserlafette) = 17cm Mod. 18 Cannon on self propelled mortar frame.

    The link on the far left of the top belt is a 20mm cannon shell link. Not sure what era as the photo isn't close enough.

    Can you do some close up of the links, front and back ?

    Cheers

    Hi all, I'm the man of the boxes and belt, and I made some pictures from the end of the belt and from the clip. They are a bit blurry because it was already dark, I can upload some better pictures tomorrow.
    Oh yeah, and I'll have a look tomorrow for some text on it.

    Ive edited the blurry pictures for some new ones. Theres also markings on it:
    20mm link:

    I-84

    Belt:

    I think the I-84 might be the date, 1984 20mm link.

    I think the belt is indeed from an M60, but I still don't know the boxes, and from what country the 20mm link is.
