Millard Bros. 5mm Pinfire Tin

This tin of 5mm Pinfire cartridges was made by RWS in Nuremberg for Millard Bros, London.
Two layers of 25 rounds held by card. Only one cartridge as shown with a raised acorn headstamp.
It is 22.5mm case length and I hope was from the original contents.

How long was Millard Bros in business? I remember shooting Milbro air-rifle pellets in the 1960’s
and this was their trade brand.
