    Ade, I'll post some pictures, I'ts needed a lot of cleaning up.I need help with the markings on it, all I can understand is the date 1943.It came from Rhodesia, I suspect it was one of the Cuban shipments to either Mozambique or Angola and subsequently captured.It's certainly been around a bit.
    thanks Pete.

    Hi Pete, you have done a good job if if was as bad as it sounded. Looks nice.

    The stampings read : Machine gun Model of 1943.

    Cheers, Ade.
