Fantastic pictures and information, will have a proper read later !
Any one notice that the drawings actually show a ZGB33 rather than a Bren Mk1!
Dutchie, is your tripod a A.G.E. BSA or C.C.M?
ZGB33 ?? what ???? BSA or CCM, they are motorbikes arent they???? Carl Fogarty's lovely wife used to run CCM ?? Come on Mr Bobby, you being pedantic for pedantics sake, was trying to think of a BlackAdder line there but ..
What is going on with the SMLE and the tripod?
The drawings used were taken from photographs of the ZGB33 (The trial Bren before it was named the Bren). You can see the holes in the flash hider and the rear sight is angled back slightly whereas the Brens is angled to 90 degrees.
BSA is Birmingham Small Arms (who also made motorbikes) and CCM is Canadian Cycle and Motor. The BSA and CCM are the marks found on the tripod head depending who made it, the other manufacturer is AGE, Australian General Electric.
And a shot with the Drum magazine installed.
