The Case's themselves have their own individual NATO Stock Numbers.

Thanks to Sinwave for the missing Model 8 Mk VI number which I didn't have.

I'm now only missing the Multimeter Test Set No 1 - Mk2 numbers for both the Meter and the Case. The Meter was a Model 8 Mk V, but I don't know if it was different to the one supplied in the Mk 3 Test Set.
I've got serveral NATO versions of the model 8 Mk5.

NSN 6625-99-620-9572 and
NSN 6625-99-650-2823

Not sure which is which or why or whether one or the other makes that a TS No.1 Mk2 or 3. I can't be certain because as we all know, cases do and have been swapped around from time to time.

The only difference I can see in some is that some have the indication to set to OFF and DC for transit and some do not, I assume the older ones do not.

However, I do have some without the OFF and DC instruction which have the same NSN as the ones which do.

I'll try and dig out all of my NATO 8/5's and let you know, as I've received them, the NSN on the meter and whether the case says Mk2 or Mk3.
