Guys,

Went out to play today, again very late, only a few pictures as i would expect at about 1100 local time, then I found a lucky penny and this?!

It appears to be shrapnel damaged on the R/H side it is from a mechanical point of view rusted solid so the hammers don't work, the aluminium parts are fine though except for the locking catch which is sheered off.

I don't have one of these and it is original so I took the plunge!

Jock :)

What, the plunge into the skip to get it out or did you actually buy it :) Either way Jock it's a nice find.

I saw a WWI flare gun in France years and years ago at a market, ground dug and you could still cock it but I pondered too long and someone else bought it. I'm still kicking myself.
