Subject: Found in Rural Retreat Depot
Anyone know what this was used for? It was found in the Rural Retreat Depot. It is made of soft metal, looks like it attaches to a wall, and provides a tray with cover. It is 22? long and about 5? deep.
It appears to be a flag holder, with a tray for fusees and torpedos.
