Default ID Military chest

This followed me home around 1947. I have no idea what its military use was, but it makes a great place to store my cleaning equipment. It is built like a tank, rubber seal, etc.
Anyone have a clue as to what its original purpose was?

I'd either agree and go with radio storage, or if it's watertight, possibly something the frogmen had.

I don't think we hand any radios that small back then. I have looked in a lot of military surplus shops and have never found anything like it. It was picked up when I was stationed an Air Force repair depot in Erding Germany so it might have been for some sensitive test equipment.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Perhaps a Chaplain's Box?

Enough room for a bottle, Bible and other necessities!!
