G day, I recently picked up this .303 carton thinking they were British manufactured because of the "special for RAF" but they are actually Australian made with the head stamp MF 1940 VII( SAAF Footscray). There is also a 'MF' on the tag which i didnt see when I got them.
So I have a couple of questions
Is this a special order that SAAF Footscray delivered to the RAF at the height of the battle of britain to help out in a desperate time ( the date on the tag is August 1940)?
Or is all airforce ammo marked this way? you would think Australian ammo would be marked RAAF?
