Much better.
What tool do you use to close the nail holes?

From an Osprey on uniform equipment I think. Anyone seen it in person?

Urgh - certainly not the pre-1808 tin 'magazine' it purports to be. Looks more like a bloody Victorian cigar case!

Looks double-ended: a flap on both ends with an uncharacteristic clasp. Would like to see reverse. Possibly custom made?

Pic has Queens Own Highlanders as credit. Fort George?

The pre-1808 tin magazine:

scaled pattern from JSAHR in 1989. Anyone got a copy? I feel a winter project coming on.

Thanks Ben. So not a scaled pattern as such. Anyway I'll give it a go using the Turner pattern and refs from this site. I have suitable leather. Though making the tins might be a challenge with my soldering skills!

I know a nice man who I might be able to get a couple of buckles from.

Well there is an accompanying article with measurements. I suppose that would be helpful. Hang on.

Does anyone have information on the short buff strap that connected the box to a button on the back of the bayonet frog?

I'm speculating that the strap buttoned to the tab on the rear of the box, then to the button on the frog???
