    here is an interesting box, I had no idea the magazines were so rare. I just noticed on the end a C broad arrow and maker mark stamped into the wood, has the stencil on both sides

    Wow, now this I like very much. Yes, I agree to 100 round drum mags are hard to find. I do not recall seeing any on the market in a long time. My understanding is their use was vrry limited. Relegated to AA only.

    Dean was giving me some background on their use, agree AA and for 4 mount bren AA, also 75 drums or so came out of one of the Sherman Duplex tanks found off the coast of Normandy, bringing them in for troop use

    Also there was no specific web carrier for these,

    Maybe that was not specific enough - there is a Bren on CGN, not a drum mag for $1400. I think Marstar has drum mags, though.

    Well I took a few updated photos as I had this out today for some quick cleaning and maintenance. I was also fortunate enough to locate SOME of my Bren Accessories. I do hope to eventually find everything and get a nice couple of full group pictures.

    Very nice display Cliff, it is a pity that this kind of weaponry is almost impossible to collect here in the low countries due to our very strict firearm laws.
