#BS179 1894 Canadian .303 Ammunition Crate, Dominion Arsenal
This is an original Canadian .303 crate for Mk II ball ammunition, dated September 1894 by Dominion Arsenal (Quebec, Canada). This exceedingly rare crate represents the earliest stages of Canadian .303 ammunition production, and is the type that would have accompanied Canadian troops into the Boer War. Built to hold 1100 cartridges of .303 Inch S.A. Ball, it is in remarkably complete and untouched condition. The original paper labels are present and mostly intact with one carrying rope in place. This is the earliest example of a Canadian .303 ammunition crate that we are aware of in any collection. From a historical perspective, the .303 British rimmed rifle cartridge was first developed in Britain as a black-powder round and put into service in December 1888 for the Lee-Metford rifle - but in 1891 the cartridge was modified to use smokeless powder. The "Cartridge S.A. Ball .303 inch Cordite Mark II", commonly known as the Ball Cordite Mark II, was approved to Design RL9054 in July 1893 and shown in LoC Paragraph 7278 dated December 1893. It was manufactured in both Great Britain and elsewhere in the Empire and, although briefly replaced in 1897-99 by the hollow point ball rounds, once these were withdrawn the Ball Cordite Mark II was reintroduced and continued in service until replaced by the Mark VI in 1904. This incredibly early Canadian .303 ammunition crate would be nearly impossible to replace or upgrade. $1250

The unit departed from Halifax, Nova Scotia, on board the SS Southland on March 28, 1917 and arrived at Liverpool, England, ten days later. Lacking the numbers to make up a battalion, the unit was reorganized as No. 2 Construction Company in May 1917, and attached to the Canadian Forestry Corps. By the fall of 1917, the unit was operating in the Jura Mountains of France, headquartered at La Joux. It was employed primarily in the production of timber for use by the Allied armies and repairing roads. The men of No. 2 Construction Battalion returned to Canada in early 1919 and the unit officially disbanded on September 15 of the same year.
