Ammunition tin?

Found metal detecting in south Australia, can’t get measurements as I’m still out.

Is it an ammunition tin?

Looks like a truck toolbox with

Wasn’t too sure, didn’t look like any ammo tins I’d seen before, better off asking than not knowing!

It is a cover/lid for a water sample point, used by SA Water. It is used to cover the water sample tap & is hinged up out of the way when you want to take the sample for water quality testing. They were mounted on a post next to a pipeline with a copper pipe running to the sample tap & spout.
