    The brush reminds me of the type we were issued in US Navy boot camp that we used to scrub our clothes and White hats with. What a thrill.
    Nice finds.

    Great ensemble, lighting, and items! Is that a Sten or a Bren? (not a Bren, mag comes out horizontally?) Is it 9mm? More details and shots of the glasses and compass?

    Hi Larboard, thanks for your interest. The gun in question is a 9mm Sten Mk2. The magazine housing is folded underneath the gun in the storage position, when in use the magazine housing is rotated to the side. Here are some more pictures from my collection. Doug

    You've got some great stuff there Doug.

    Do you know this site http://www.corpsofmilitarypolice.org/tools/armynumber It might help you to find something out about those numbers if you're interested.

    Thx Doug, I love a comprehensive collection like in your "British Army Equipment" shot. Fantastic lighting, what camera?

    Ultra fine pieces, all. Too bad web gear is so scarce now...

    Is that a Lend Lease Colt (or S&W) M1917?

    What are the red tipped stand offs of the long range glasses?

    These are photographed with a canon 5d mk3. The revolver is a colt police positive .38, originally US police issue but supplied to Britain under lend lease. I dont know why the binocular screws are painted red, if anyone else does please let me know.

    When I was a boy I could get wartime webbing for pocket money prices in my local army surplus store. Things have changed.
