Does anyone have any pictures of the crates Garands would have been stored in during the war when being transported in bulk?

Would like to get a couple knocked together for our reenactment display.

Same goes for thompson?

I have tried searching the internet but can get no concrete evidence on specific crates.

Many thanks!

Scott

Thank you!

I found some pics online of how to make them but i think they'd be a big bulky. Might have a go at making crates which can hold 3 rifles each!

Thanks for the photos - My father was an inspector at H & R when they had the M1 contract in the mid 1950's - It was his first job after he was discharged from the Marine Corps.
