Vintage WW2 1944 Royal Navy leather, canvas & cork ammunition holder or cordite bucket. With Armorial Crest, Made by B.H. & G. Ltd. No. 57 III 12-1944 11" x 6" Many of these leather buckets were designed to carry cordite. These carriers are flash proof and carry cartridges. Cordite is a group of smokeless propellants developed and produced in the United Kingdom from 1889 to replace gunpowder as a military propellant. Some marks and scratches as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior. Great original piece. No major damage, dints and marks commensurate with age.
This exceptional item will make a great display piece for nautical decor.
