    I thought I would post some pictures of my Canadian made 2" mortar cleaning kit. This example dates from 1945 and was produced by Zephyr Loom and Textile. it has the phenolated resin impregnated tips to the straps and is nicely marked up:

    For comparison purposes here it is with a British made version on the right:

    The kit would hold a bore brush, oil bottle and take down tool for the mortar.
