Default kit locker box detail

Hi, Has anyone got a close up picture of this bracket which go's on the kit locker box, I have made the bracket from an original which I have now returned. I need to drill the holes but did not mark which way round it's mounted (the bracket is not a square with equal distances, does it sit long ways or is the longest part upright)?. help!

Default TL 13034 Socket - lifting jack, small Chilwell 63/76

Long side upright. i.e. 1-5/8 inch length upright. The 1-3/8 inch length with two 1/4 inch bolt holes is fitted against kit locker lid.
Known in FUC-03 as Socket - housing stores.
Look in Nigel Watson's Book #1. An excellent photo with the socket exposed to view on "Maid Marion", a named MKI carrier mounting the kit locker over the forward lifting rings above the glacis plate .

Default KIt locker box

Gents,

I want to mount a long kit locker box in a mk1 carrier, does anyone have the dimensions of the packing pieces which it mounts on, I am guessing they are the same thickness as the angle iron, would there be three strips along the the mounting holes?.

kevin.
