I would like to share some pics of 8X50 lebel (N type) ammo packs given to me by a Police armorer. In fact they are coming from CRS (public order - crowd control units) which had Berthier carbines (as well as a pistol).

The first pack is a paper pack dated 1948, 12 rounds in three round clips ! Quite late isn't it?

The second pack is in fact a "safety" pack. The CRS policeman had one blue cloth pack like this. Just imagine the seconds or even minutes needed to unwrap the pack to take the clip if ever the policeman was needing it.
