Or an old wine crate? I picked this up off the curb, and in it was a french newspaper from 1919 and two long canvas muzzle covers off of some artillery pieces I assume was from WW1 that are marked RAR, which I believe would stand for Royal Artillery Regiment, and a canvas gunny sack. Carbana means rifle in Italian (I think) but I cannot find what Purgativi means. There is some other writing on the end but it is hard to make out. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks for looking.
