<HTML>hi,this is my first post here and am wondering if anyone could help me with a little mystery concerning hms courageous.
i have in my possession a small wood and metal box with a chinese dragon engraved on the top and a chinese inscription on one side.
my great aunt gave it to me recently,and it was presented to her by her father,who was in the armed forces.it is said to have come from hms courageous and i am trying to verify this.there is a chinese herbal medicine shop in our town,who i've considered approaching to see if they can help with the inscription,possibly the name of the manufacturer or even an previous owner.
if anyone here has any information or can point me in the right direction to trace the history of this box,i'd be most grateful.
