[quote=“Torben”]The English cartridges probably dropped to the Danish resistance movement,
that after the war is collected and inspected and repacked, cartridges can be stamped with different years, but the Danish term for cartridges M 45E.
Most 9mm cartridges that were dropped were Canadian produced but were designated as English, Canada belonged to the English throne
I have a box like the shown and the cartridges are head stamp DI
DI = Defence Industries Ltd.
Verdun, Quebec[/quote]Most of the dropped was canadian with a split of approx 80% to 20% british*. When the resistance turned in their ammo, intact boxes where inspected and marked like the box Lew has shown. One exception was for loose ammo, for example emptied Sten magazines, this usually ended up in 50 count boxes like the one Lew had, which were the standard danish M/41 box at this time. I have found, and been given, boxes of canadian 9mm that did not have any official (danish) stamps on them and they probably came from deceased resistance members.
*Based on what I have counted from handed in ammo.
