The large Transit tin, apart from being named with owners details, rank and address, bears the Royal Marine insignia and colors on both the outside and inside lid of the chest; a relatively common practice usually done by the Regimental artist. This set dates to the WW2 period but, as stated, no research whatsoever has been undertaken.
