|5th January 2004||MH Ammo Packets - strung up?|
By Jonathan Hicks
Does anyone know if the MH2 rifle ammo packets were really bound with string (as on display in the SWB Museum in Brecon) or whether it's a more modern addition as the glue holding the paper together has deteriorated? Sounds trivial I know, but dedicated readers will be somewhat familiar with the saga of my ammo box!
Happy New Year to you all.

The bundles were secured with a twine like string. The bundle wrappers were not glued however.
Hope this helps
