I am working on a short article for the IAA Journal on Syrian boxes. I would appreciate any help in translating the labels for these three boxes. Thanks!
The picture below that the first two boxes have the Syrian Eagle with three stars. This was the coat of arms until 1 Feb 1958 when Egypt and Syria joined together as the United Arab Republic (UAR) with President Nassar of Egypt becoming president of both countries. The UAR continued until Syria withdrew on 28 September 1961, though Egypt continued to use the name into 1971. These two boxes contain cartridges dated 1957 and 1958. I also have a box like the 1957, but the ammo is dated 1956.
The third box has the Egyptian style eagle with two stars to represent the two nations of Syria and Egypt and contains cartridges dated 1960.
My latest Syrian box dates from 1962 and looks like a commercial box. It is green and red and black with information in both Arabic and French.
Does anyone have any Syrian boxes. or photos of Syrian boxes that date from 1962 or later? Info appreciated.
