Fede & Pete,
Great boxes. Many thanks! A few years back Tony Edwards and I discussed information he found in his records indicating that Remington and the British Government were discussing the purchase of 9mm Parabellum ammunition. In the article mentioned by Fede he shows 9mm Parabellum as part of the contract in 1941. This 1941 buy, if actually delivered could be in ordinary commercial boxes, and for a quantity of only 15,000 rounds this is likely, but it is also possible the contract could have specified a box similar to the one above.
Has anyone seen a Green and off-white Remington 9mm Box???
The 1941 contract also included orders for 32 Auto, 32 S&W, 32 Short, 38 Auto, 38 S&W, 38 Colt, 45 Colt, 30 Mauser and 450 Revolver. Have any of these calibers been seen in this Green & White style box?
Tony illustrates a 45 Auto Green & White box, but there is no image of the back and no mention of a date. Perhaps this box was not adopted until after the 1941 order.
