    Nice find. Great condition and complete. I believe it is from the mid-late 1920's- early 1930's.

    Hi Zwerge,

    We had the same Parker Hale cleaning kits down here in Australia. I remember getting some old stock back in the 1970's that dated from the late 50's early 60's that were very similar. I think from memory the cleaning rods in the early ones were covered in a type of paint and the slightly later ones in a plastic covering.


    Great find, that old Young's 303 bore cleaner was really good stuff, I can still remember the distinctive smell.

    Cheers,

    Spence

    Hello Swerge,
    Nice find, I ran out of 4"x2" today but still use Youngs .303 as I have since being a cadet at school a long time ago. As Spence mentioned, the distinctive aroma is very pleasing, who needs after shave lotion when you have a can of Youngs?
    Cheers,
    navyman.
