Anguilla anguilla, freshwater eel Featured May Image

Anguilla anguilla, freshwater eel

US M2 . 30 in self-loading carbine, 1944 (c). Magazine (numbered); National Postal Meter Corporation; no rear sight. One of the great success stories of World War Two the M1 carbine was used widely by the British Army because of its short range firepower. Produced as a stop-gap weapon for second-line troops it became a very popular weapon because of its lightness and semi-automatic action. The M2 variant provided full automatic fire when needed, controlled by a single switch. It was often used with a larger, 30 round, magazine. As the Malayan Emergency developed it became a sought after weapon to give high firepower in jungle firefights. Although its cartridge had no great stopping power it was adequate for short range actions. Its reliability in humid conditions made it a successful jungle weapon. Date: circa 1944

Sub Machine Gun, Owen, 9 Mm Mk I Featured May Image

Sub Machine Gun, Owen, 9 Mm Mk I

Owen Mk I (or I/42) 9 mm sub machine gun, 1943 (c). Wooden butt and bakelite grips. Painted in jungle camouflage. The Owen was an indigenous Australian design developed in 1942 and widely used in World War Two. It was much more reliable than the Sten which was regarded with suspicion by many soldiers particularly when used on jungle patrols. Many regiments preferred the Owen when it was available. The Owen had an unusual overhead feeding magazine. However it was a tough and reliable weapon. In Malaya it was available in considerable numbers and often provided most of the patrol's firepower. The design was so effective that it remained in service well into the 1960s. Date: circa 1943
