    Very interesting, but not how the Bren is meant to be fired, why do all these demonstrators have to show the extreme use of a weapon, because it cant be aimed correctly those full bursts would go everywhere which might keep peoples heads down but would rarely connect to do any serious damage, the firer would constantly be altering his aiming point thats why sustained fire on the bren isnt advised but three or five second bursts will stay on target with the use of sights

    Nice drill rounds WH and some very nice mags Despite it's condition, both the BAR and Boyes mags are great !

    Interesting clip about the Bren and I totally agree with Dave. He wouldn't have hit a barn door with anything other than the first 2 rounds firing like that.

    Great vid showing the Bren 100 round adapter. That was almost made me I think. I'm so happy that I know how those bracket things work now nice one.

    Nice big can Steve... I have the large cap and the bit it sits in broken off from the cap and the weird bit that looks like a pouring spout too.

    Well I am suprised. The mag is from a Sterling SMG or possibly a Patchett (Sterling predecessor) but I'm not sure how a Patchett mag compares to a Sterling mag. Thats probably the first post war item found.

    Yup you got it, its a Sterling mag, was just about to post -

    In the mid 1950s, the Sterling company introduced their own production magazine, which has a shell consisting of four separate steel stampings and is recognizable by the curved shape and scalloped spot welding on the rear of the magazine. The front plate is also scalloped, but this is less visible than the rear scalloping...

    Pah, not the only bits of post war. My and Johns dog-tags are both post war, plus I found a plastic bottle of Fanta there that was certainly 2001 issue
