I'd love to know anything at all about this small trunk. It's 31" by 13.5" by 14.5" tall. Wood and wicker inside. Outside is a green canvas-y material with leather, rope, and chain accents. Top lifts and front folds down to reveal a wicker inside with a main compartment and a divided bottom compartment. Writing inside (see fourth picture) is hard to make out. I believe it says John and Sheffield. Not sure what else, and I'm not sure what the three-part triangular symbol means. Bought 8-10 years ago at a yard sale. Not in spectacular condition, as you can see, but not terrible, either. Some discoloration (and I'm sure fading), and the leather isn't in great shape. Some searching shows it likely to be a World War II medical pannier. Not sure how common they are. Anyone?
