Finally I found one!

Here is a ‘captains’ style chair with the AM stamp and 1939 date. The chair appears to have been stripped back to bare wood as this would not be the finish normally associated with a government issue piece. Dark stain usually the colour of the day. The joints are a little wobbly and some damage to the back rest is present and has been poorly repaired. However it is still sturdy and solid. A very rare piece to find. The legs are a particular style/pattern and are very unlike most other captains chairs you see around. I have only seen one other example in the last year. I am going to get this chair professionally restored/repaired to return it to its once former glory.
