hmmm not sure but seems like there is a l.F.H. 18 - leichte Feldhaubitze 18 (10,5cm) - so... I would guess it was a box for some optic equipment ?? or other stuff for this gun ???

Correct. It's for the Rundblickfernrohr. Same box used for most artillery pieces, but this one specially marked for the l.F.H. 18. Missing the wooden brackets to hold the scope. The white apinted area shows the position of the "Ausblick".
