My Vickers transit chest says "Vickers or Lewis Gun".
Mine too but I wonder if they are the same exterior dimensions as the Bren chest?

I have read that these are the exterior measurements of the more common Vickers and Bren Transit chests (L x W x H):

Vickers/Lewis - 45" x 8" x 10"
Bren - 49" x 7.5" x 12"

No guarantees though.

I have nice examples of all three ( Lewis, Vickers, and Bren) the Lewis / vickers are interchangeable with movable interior blocks. The boxes are otherwise identical. the Bren crate is narrower, and does not interchange. They are buried in the shop or I would post photos.....

Thanks for the info. I thought the Bren boxes were narrower. :(
Anyone have a nice Bren chest for sale?
