A couple shots of the British tools are below. They are recognisable by their Broad Arrow stampings. As Ford put a little f script on all their Jeep parts, all British military items have an arrow on them somewhere.
Using the G503 posts I set to scrounging in my workshops. I work with mostly vintage tools as it is so finding tools that were at least close to what should be in the box was not hard. Going through my grandfather’s tools, and items given to me by a WW2 mechanic (who was running an autoshop fulltime up through around 2004) I found most of what should be in the box. A couple ebay scores and some fine tuning through the Barton collection items brought the box to pretty near full. I customised the tools by adding in specialty tools I use for Jeep repair. And yes, some tools are not exactly what should be in there (ie the ancient Husky ratchett) but they do serve the purpose of another tool that would have been in the set. Here are some shots of the box.
If any of my readers have photographs of WW2 American or REME motorpools, can recommend a good book on motorpools, know where to find British tools or toolboxes, or want to share anything else please either email me direct through my website or drop a comment here. Thanks!!!
Update Aug 26: I started taking the toolkit to my secondary restoration shop. The Army knew what they were doing when they chose what went into this box. I was able to do all the work I needed for an afternoon just using tools from this set.
