Default Unkown Box German ?

I bought the box below at the weekend, it had been used to hold some tools, one side had been bolted up so it did not open, as it originally did when first made, there is below all the current paint layers an original matt green finish. The two latches appear to be the German type found on several wartime made boxes (especially optic boxes), there was a third in the middle but it has been removed to put a lockable padlock hasp on it. The one thing that doesn't add up though are the leather handles, which do not appear to be of a German style. It measures 64cm long and was found in the UK. I have also taken a photo, comparing it with an original wartime latch, which dimensionally is the same.
Any ideas anyone ?

There are leather handles on both ends, as well as the top.
