    Hi,definately need pictures.The shell maybe a WW2 front seem but is it repainted?Is it swivel bale/fixed bale?We cannot tell you without pictures.Does the liner conform to WW2 configurations or is it a later one?Again we can't tell you without pictures.I think you probably now have more questions than answers!! I hope to have a good "look" at it soon so we can help.

    I suppose it depends on what the term "early postwar"actually means.the liner is a p55 type made from yes 1955 to 1963.note the webbing is 100%cotton not HBT.All front seamed were WW2 produced unless proved otherwise,swivel bale with postwar T1 hook configeration chinstrap,regards minnie.
