    Default .303 Rifle Cleaning Kit.

    Wasn't sure if this needed to go into the Firearms bit or here...here won since it's more equipment than a firearm...

    Found these pics I'd taken of a cleaning kit that was issued with a Lee Enfield No.5 MK1 and since I've not seen many posted on here I thought I stick them up. There not the best pics in the world (might redo them sometime) but you get the gist of it!

    Some more...

    Does anyone know who the S 424 dispersal code belongs too (if that's what it is?) and what does the S.M. 110 mean?

    Not sure on the dispersal code(if it is?)

    All i know is they ran from North to South. N=North.M=midlands.S=south.

    On your top picture there is a number painted on the lid.If i'm not mistaken the 2337 block would put it in the Royal corps of Signals.

    It looks like a dispersal code but I wasn't sure if they would still be using them in 1946? I think the S. M. 110 is possibly a part number, just for the box maybe rather than the full kit? I happened to be looking thru Graham Priest's 'Spirit of the Pike' book and noticed in a lot of the engineering drawings for the bayonets the components/parts had numbers beginning S.M so I'm guessing at S.M 110 being similar - a component/part of the cleaning kit?

    The service number belonged to my dad who was in REME.

    I'm not sure, possibly might of done? It's not really something I know much about to be honest.
