    Default Rifle Drop Valise

    Not knowing too much about British gear, what can you tell me about this? I think I understand the 44th AB ( Indian) and REME but don't quite understand the 'work shop (?)....Are these around or is this a somewhat rare piece?

    Regards Steve T

    Hi Steve, these are not common by any means. Nice example.

    They even fake these now.

    Cheers, Ade.
