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

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
