Original Garand Crates WW2

Recommended Posts

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!

I found these...not dated WWII but im sure they are the same.




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.
