Hi from Tassie in Australia.


Recommended Posts

Hi my interest is anything military from WW1 to 1970's. I currently own a type 3 WLA with about 7000 original miles on the clock which was civilianised when sold out of service. I have tried to maintain her originality by adding the military equipment back in an attempt to bring her as close to mil spec as possible.


My other passion is collecting armourers tools and items for the repair of SMLE and to attempt to complete an original Australian armourers box, which is missing a lot of tools.

Hi Steve


here's a welcome up north in Victoria.


There's a guy here who's had a WLA since he purchased it from a disposals sale in the 1970's.


Just maintains it, never been repainted and still sounded great the last time I saw it. (a while back)


Good luck with the SMLE tools. Probably lots gone during the buy back scheme if there was any money in it!
