I have made close examination of the box. It is 1938 dated! It had been repainted at least twice. First layer of paint is probably three colour camouflage I will provide more pictures later.

Pictures of camouflage colours and date 1938. I wonder if it was factory painted like boxes for MG. There are also traces of early stencilled description on the box, with white paint.

I have just cleaned box inside and I found beautiful tri colour camouflage untouched! I guess it was factory sprayed.
