Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

PostSubject: MkV ammunition box Paper labels   MkV ammunition box Paper labels EmptyMon Feb 25, 2019 10:35 pm

Hello My first post here so a quick introduction.

I visited the sites of Isadlwana and Rorke's Drift back in 2009 when i was working in Ladysmith on a Concrete railway sleeper plant.
My sister had lived in SA and my father had also visited the sites with a particular interest as,although in the Royal Navy,  he had been attached to SWB in Malaya. He since has given talks on the battles to raise funds for various service charities.

I live in the south of UK and work as a .carpenter. My intention is to build a couple of ammunition boxes, one as a replica with tin lining and one which will hinge open to reveal a bottle of something worthwhile!. I've tracked down most of the information i need but would be grateful if anyone has any guidance on where I can obtain either the paper labels for the cartridge pack or details of sizes so I can make up a block print to make my own.

Many thanks

Many thanks for the heads up and apologies if the request induced that nasty stutter. Will get in touch with the seller and see if he'll just do a couple of labels - dont really need to collect any more lumps of wood!
