I am trying to write something on the Boxes/Tins used by the Dutch Navy from about 1928 through 1939. The Dutch Colonial Troops adopted the Luger in about 1911, but they were not part of the Ministry of War (later the Ministry of Defense). The Navy did but a very few Luger pistols in 1918 for their pilots, but didn’t adopt the pistol until 1928. All of their ammunition from this point as procured from RWS.
Originally this ammunition was packed in square 48rd tins. I have only seen a photo of this tin. In the early 1930s they began using a round 48rd tins, and the Navy units in the East Indies used a round 2rd tin as shown below.
I am looking for images of these and similar tins to document the dates of production, and particularly any of the square tins.
Any help apprecaited.
