Japanese WW2 Aircraft toolbox

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I just posted this along with several photos of the Adelaide (Australia) military vehicle museum in the museums section, but thought this was

interesting enough to post here as well.

I have never seen another example, it looks like it was used by an Aussie for his own tool box after he 'captured' the box. I don't know what is

inside the box, as I respected the museums wishes and didn't fiddle with it.

Hello. I am in Ontario Canada, and I have acquired a tool box that is akin to this one. The drawers are in tact and it is in relatively decent shape. I will post pictures, with hopes someone can shed some more light on this puzzle for me. 


Best regards
