Just bought this lovely raw-edge MKI* shell on e-bay. It was being sold as an Australian shell, but I could see from the seller's photos that it was actually a British MKI*. Luckily I already had a spare 1937 dated liner in my spares box !
I was watching this and thought MKI*. I did not bid in the end as I have decided to fix a motorcycle at this time.
Well, here's today's MKI*. It is a lovely MKI*/MKII hybrid issued to the Royal Artillery. The interesting thing about this one is all the brown paper stuffed up inside the liner (presumably as insulation or padding) and the mysterious small label stuck inside the rim If anyone has any ideas what the label is for, I would love to hear .
