Photographs for most of these can be found in the MD-3 Army Service Supply Catalog::
Container 7 is stock number 97740
Container 9 is stock number 97721
Container 5 is stock number 97690
Container 14 is stock number 97730

Look at plates 26 and 27, and on the reference page toward to back of the Peterson reprint of that catalog.

most of us know we can find a drawing of those containers in the MSC... but it would be great to see some good pictures on those containers
