Thanks Len, some nice pics.

Is that a self-loading Lee Enfield conversion?

Hi Ian,

Sorry that I seem to have lost my labelling. Yes, how about that! I had never heard of one until I saw this in the South African museum at Delville wood.

Len,

Thanks. I know I had seen one before - maybe the very same item as I have visited that fine museum a few years ago. Was it not in a WW2 section about the South Africans, or am I dreaming? I believe it was an unofficial conversion rather than a makers' fabrication.

Anyway, nice to know some part of the memory function still works!

Ian
