Unidentified WW2 box - gasmask?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I'm looking for some help identifing this box I was given last night. I was told it was a gasmask box but it seems a bit small to me for that.

Can anyone help ?

Thanks, 

Michael

Looks like a instrument box that could have been converted to a children's size gasmask box.....

The AM is for Air Ministry making it airforce issue originally, and the child size issued gasmasks were small and came in a weak cardboard box with a string "strap".

It looks quite solidly built to have been something else originally and the stamp does look quite neatly positioned. Would the Air Ministry have been involved in issuing children's gas masks?

Sorry, I meant the box was air force not that it was for a gas mask of any type, I do not specialise in either field, gas masks or air force items.
