Mortar, 2 In Mk Vii* Airborne Featured May Print

Mortar, 2 In Mk Vii* Airborne

Mk VII* 2 in mortar. Used by airborne forces during World War Two, 1945 (c). The 2 inch Mortar, introduced into service in 1938, was a light weapon designed for close support fire for infantry. Originally equipped with a base-plate and sights, it was modified during the war to a very simplified form. This model, produced in 1944 for use by airborne troops, is simply a metal tube with the sighting reduced to a white line on the barrel. The High Explosive or Smoke bomb is dropped down the barrel and fired by a simple lever. The maximum range is 430 metres (500 yards). Date: circa 1945

Anguilla anguilla, freshwater eel Featured May Print

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
