    Hi DM,

    In the top pic you have a SMLE bolt at the top, Bren Mk1 Multi tool to the right (Issued with each Mk1 and then withdrawn and issued only to Armourers).

    Below the bolt is the mouth piece to the No4 Bayonet scabbard, below that is a SMLE rear sight protector. The bits to the right of that have been ID already so I wont repeat it. Bottom left looks like a upside down Charger clip for a 7.92 type rifle but its not clear to be sure. The bottom looks like a cut off No4 rifle end but it looks the right length for a Mk5 Sten barrel.

    Pic 4 shows a No1 Mk3 SMLE butt plate on the left and a No.4 on the right. I can also tell from the photo that the bayonet is defo a No1 Mk3 Pattn 1907 Bayonet.
