Can any member help please! I'm after info on the wooden internal fittings of the No: 5, No: 23 & No: 36 grenade boxes.
I'm in the middle of making up said boxes for a museum here in N.Ireland, and i'm after the layouts & sizes of the wood fitments within them. I know the 23 & 36 boxes were very similiar inside (the 36 had a small gap either side for the gas check plates to be slotted behind), but i have only seen a couple of photies showing the insides of the No:5 grenade box complete with grenades from contempory photos.
It also seems that the 23 & 36 boxes were also a bit longer and wider than the No:5 box.
Further, does anyone know where i can get detonator tins (or lookalikes) for the said boxes, plus det tin labels etc. I can get repro 'u' shape spanners for the base plugs no problem.
Any help as always is greatly appreciated!
