There is a rather fulsome treatment of them in ZULU VICTORY by Ron Locke and Perter Quantrill. Although it is not a manual on how to make them there are photos and a copious discussion on their construction and manufacture. Plus, it's not a difficult or expensive book to lay your hands upon.

Hi John .
I think you'll find it was forum member Johann Englebrecht who posted the Ammo box , from memory it may have been found on or near his property ? , If not, possibly on his Uncles property ? . As usual very happy to be corrected . Salute 
90th.
