    No. 32 Mk 3 Mount Numbers?

    What do the numbers stamped on the bracket and rings mean? Specifically "N355" and "N356". Is there a way to find out what manufacturer made the mount? Thanks.

    Yes - you are correct. It appears to be a complete original bandoleer. All of the ammo has the same head stamp with a Canadian bandolier. Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure it is a spotting scope case. It came with this telescope stand. The name on it says "J.W. Crolley, New Kensington PA". Looks like maybe he made both the stand and the case.
