Thank you for that great illustrated summary. I will be forwarding it to my son in the UK to remind him of his interest in historic firearms.

Hi Terry,

Thank you for some great images and summery too. A fascinating topic.

I'm heading out to my local dealer this morning to pic up my latest Lee-Speed (commercial Lee-Metford), so it's very much a 'rifle' day for me.

Cheerio,

Roy

Collecting/wanted ABW insignia if anyone has some spares?
