Does anyone have any idea what kind of box this may be or what it is for? Someone shipped some items home in two identical boxes. One box was labeled with a content list. No other Japanese markings on the boxes.

Ammo box for Japanese Type 92 HMG. Holds the 30 round ammo strips in cardboard or cloth covered cardboard containers. It would normally have two thick leather straps as handles or shoulder straps for carrying, but it appears they have been cut off. Nice box!

Cool! Thanks for the info.! I was wondering if it was an ammo box. There is two of them. One still has the most of the contents on the list but they are not in the best shape, not sure what was in the other box originally but it is full of spent Japanese shells right now from larger caliber weapons. There was about 4 of the 30 round ammo strips close to the boxes when I was checking them out.

Here are the kanji characters that make an appearance on the side of the ammunition box.
甲 = A (as in A, B, C).
彈 = ammunition.
