    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.

    The SMLE could be used in place of the AA leg in an emergency if required.

    That's mostly why I posted on here. I don't know what make my tri pod is. I was hopping for CCM as my BREN is a Inglis 1943 built in Toronto.
