UK Army Surplus - American Ammo box

Many years ago I walked into a local army surplus store in the UK (for clarity) and picked up a plastic box I really liked the look of. Never really took much notice on where it was from I just thought it looked pretty cool!


It turned out to be from an American Bradley fighting vehicle (I forget the exact details) and I turned it into the following mod.



I'm looking to get my hands on around two more but being an American ammo box its really rare finding anything relating to them in this country!

eBay has a few in the US but after being stung with shipping and customs its not within my budget to justify.

Simply. Has anyone come across boxes like this that sell from the UK? I'm happy to arrange some third party fee if it becomes convenient to pick me up some from a local surplus.

I've already arranged with my local surplus if they ever come across some I should be the first to call.

I bought a couple of these a a year or 2 back at BASE Army Surplus in Bournemouth.
I think they were 15 a piece, they were heavy duty plastic with an over centre clip on the site to hold the top. They didn't have the labels on any more, just black all over.
If you don't have any joy, I may be able to recover them as they were used for a while at the Scouts I help at, but are in the stores at the moment

That sounds brilliant. if they are recoverable I would love to take them off your hands for the right price

I need something ultra sturdy for a project and they've always been my first choice. its just almost impossible to come by them
