    .303 grenade launching cartridge tin label

    Post by Infanteer on Tue Dec 03, 2013 11:48 pm

    Does anyone have a Canadian tin of WW2 vintage .303 grenade launching cartridges? I picked up a full tin at a recent gun show but the label was missing and if I can find a suitable photo I can make a repro label. The tin appears to hold 14 rounds of H Mk I made by DI. My cartridges are dated 1941 but other dates will suffice as long as the style of the label is correct. Finally, the label was on the front of the tin and not on the lid like some examples I've seen. Anyone?

    Your not talking about the square det tin are you? I do have a couple of those...one with a label I do believe.

    I don't think so, I've only seen these tins loaded with grenade launching cartridges but, that does sound interesting. I would like to see a photo if it's not a problem.

    I did find a photo online of a similar tin but the label is on the lid. That will work if I can't find anything else but I'd like to find an example that matches the spot on my tin where a label was clearly attached at one point.

    I thought I saw one in your collection a while back so it's probably not what you need. I will dig it out soon and get you a pic though.

    I think he is looking for one of these.


    Nice detonator tin though Dale.
    Hard to find.

    Thanks Haplo, that tin in the middle is exactly what I've been searching for. Too bad it's not yours though. At least with this photo I should be able to make up a repro label.

    Good looking det tin Dale. Thanks for sharing as I was thinking it may have been a smaller version.

    This is the best I was able to make with the limited software options that I have. It works until I can create something better. Thanks for the help Haplo  2 thumbs up
