From my previous post....

"Getting back to 'BMSS' for just a moment, AGAS 5 was correct: it is the Box Metal Shipping Steel, NSN 8115-66-025-8558. It was 8 feet x 6 feet x 6 feet 4 inches, with a volume of 260 cubic feet (volume was mentioned in an earlier post). Cargo loading was maximum 10,000 pounds. Officially introduced into service in late 1967. 250 in the initial purchase. "

Better photo of the Australian Royal mail hardtop. Note that the tropical roof has been painted white. This gives us a clue to identifying this vehicle in other photos such as the one posted below.
