  3. Clive, You could be right after a little web search of Bs381C 499 I think that's the dark brown that is used on the ammo boxes you see for 7.62, 5.56 & 105mm etc.... I should have posted a picture really to avoid any confusion. I will post one today if I get a chance. Cheers Alex P.s Clive you should have a picture of the .30 box (and the gun linkage). It was my turret you where photographing at Evesham this year.
  4. Many thanks Clive. Will see if I can get a tin mixed up at the local paint supplier. cheers alex

There will be further displays of other types of Military Radio equipment, Weapons and Militaria, Military Vehicles, Help for Heroes Merchandise, Territorial Army Recruitment Stand, Army, Air Cadets and the very interesting Hereford Light Infantry Museum.
