    Hi prospecteur,
    Very nice find, you must have been over the moon when you dig this up. I know i would have been, you keep it in good condition to, I have a Mk1 Bren but i dont think i could put it in my garden like that, These were very accurate
    weapons I have fired the 7.62 version L.M.G,. Do you find much in the dunes ie, relics ect.
    Dave.

    I love the first photo - what you had in the foreground made the background possible! (think about it).

    Very well done!
