    Unknown Sten Manufacturer Codes...

    Post by staples57 on Fri Jul 27, 2012 10:09 am

    Asking the experts...

    I recently purchased a DEWAT Mk. II Sten. The manufacturer markings & codes have me a bit stumped.

    The receiver (magwell) is marked...
    STEN MK II
    E&Co

    The trigger guard is marked...
    J
    H [?] LD
    W
    These initials are in a shield (please see attached photo).

    I believe that "E&Co" is Elkington & Company (Birmingham) however, I cannot find any info on "JHW LD.

    What are your thoughts?

    Any and all info is very much appreciated.
    Many Thanks!
