A ordnance tan painted, sheet metal construction MG light battery box. The box features a fold back top lid with a staggered, bar, hinge to the reverse and a spring loaded, closure clip to the obverse. The closure clip attaches to a extended steel stud positioned on the lower front of the box’s body. The lower reverse of the box has dual drilled holes for the plug outlets for the electrical cable to attach it to the MG. One side of the case has a brazed on, extended, slotted, sheet metal panel designed to secure the box to the MG’s tripod. The case retains about 75% of its original paint.
