Just a update I have been busy getting some reloading supplies and dies rounded up 
I wanted to ask the group if this is a Appropriate Sling for my rifle I haven’t found anything about slings in my book so I thought about asking here.

It seems you are already in good hands with Goosic!

PS. I have never seen this sling before - but it appears well referenced.

I’m beginning to think Michael is sitting in a warehouse full of 303 British Enfield  stuff😂

I'm missing the No2Mk1 revolver because I sold it and I'm missing the most important item, the Transit Chest simply because I refuse to pay 1500.00 for a box...

It’s crazy isn’t it.  I bet hundreds of them were broken up for firewood over the years.

I live about 8 miles away from the old Umatilla Army depot that was built during WWII and tru the years you would not believe how many chicken coops, Barns and shacks were built with those wood army boxes most of them 3/4” pine boards all recycled before it was cool to do it

there was a lot of recycling before we were told to do it , it just happened because it made sense , today the govment seems to think they have to require it instead of letting it happen - i think there is a lot of money changing hands ............and a bunch of commies trying to control you , 

next we will see a special police force to round up those that disagree .........oh ya , that happened and is happening again , one of these days we need to make communism an undesirable thing again , 

sorry , a bit pi$$ed off with todays news , off my soapbox , its a shame that so much war surplus got relegated to the waste stream , but at the time folks wanted to be rid of the war and all that reminded them of it , they wanted jobs to move forward and were looking at the waste as potential low cost improvement of life quickly , lot of government purchased pine that was very useable in daily life , cant blame them for that ,

Goosic, photo's like this make me droooooool!   Awesome.   I was bidding on a pair of Australian WWII wire cutters - traditional, like the ones in your photo, and I had to tap out.   Not as expensive as a transit chest, but there is only so much one can pay for things - they were the same wire cutters made for every farmer in Australia and would be worth about $5 at a flea market, but put the D^D and we are talking hundreds.   Yep, I'm guilty too.

What do you think the armourers from the 1940s would think of us crazies??   You paid How Much for a box????  It so much fun!

Those wire cutters cost me a grand total of $9.95 from an antique shop in Scottsdale AZ. The intresting thing is the one on the right was made by the Sunbeam Co. The only Sunbeam Co. I am aware of made bread...

The charging clips seem to be a redundant part and this has been my contention, in that the sniper should have been issued a bandolier containing at least 5 loaded magazines.  I would have gotten into trouble by going to the base armourer and withdrawing, "spares." 
Very nice photo Terrylee...

TerryLee - did you have to assemble this overtime, or was it a complete kit you found.   Very nice!

Being a Ford guy I am well aware of Sunbeam Tigers , I wonder if they made these cutters during the war I did notice they made motorcycles during the war but not much else that I can find.
