Hi, is anybody else on here into militaria? A couple of years ago I was looking through some of my bits and bobs and I found a ww2 37 pattern Bren gun ammo pouch. Nothing unusual in that except it was stamped as made by Rover!
37 pattern Bren gun pouches are common as muck but I've only seen 1 other made by Rover. Sadly the seller thought it was made of pure gold.. so it stayed on his stall.. Hopefully I'll find another to make the pair one day.
The Bren Gun was my personal weapon for a few years until it was replaced by the LMG which was not at all lightweight and then subsequently the LSW which was much better to lug around as it was magazine fed and not belt fed like the LMG was.
I accidently took hold of the barrel during a change of barrels and after a long sustained burst off of a few mags. Never again did I make that mistake. It burnt right through my gloves and took most of my palm skin withy it. LOL. Memories eh.
