WOW!
Hope some surplus dealer is able to get all the small arms and ammo out of there so collectors can enjoy it!

Where?

They are out of Afghanistan. Can anyone ID the ammo crates?

Unfortunately they will probably all be cut up and sent for scrap if they haven’t been already, as seems to be the way nowadays. Those Lee Enfiled No.4 rifles look like they would be just fine after a drop of oil. The bunch of corrupt moneymen calling themselves the UN apparently now forbid governments to sell surplus arms to civillians.

is labelled in Turkish “Afghanistan War School requirements”

Jon,

The stencilled marks on some of the crates: CHEST S A H9 Mk II (where S A = Small Arms) are typical British markings. The calibres would be marked on another face of the crate.
