    I recently picked up this Australian SLR cleaning kit with, apparently, a tube of grease in it and no oil bottle. Is that what Australia did with later issue of these cleaning kits, replace the oil...

    Looking at this photo in 2019 it seems amazing that these soldiers have been put into an extremely difficult situation totally devoid of appropriate equipment for the task given to them.
