    Post Bren Pamphlet



    Note: After you click on images to ENLARGE them, you may find they automatically size smaller in your browser's window making them harder to view. The auto sizing is your browser's way of keeping images entirely within the screen size you have set. Move your mouse pointer to the bottom centre of the pic and you will see an options panel appear. There will be a small square box next to the large X, which will have a pointer arrow sticking out of it. If it's illuminated, it means the pic you're viewing can be enlarged, so click on this box and the pic will EXPAND and open to its normal size. You can then grab the pic with your mouse (hold down left mouse button) and move it around to look more closely at various parts of the photo.

    We had the originals of these drawings at the Small Arms School at Warminster that were ready to be put into the first Military Training pamphlets but some parts of the drawings were already obsolete by the time large scale deployment of the gun was in hand so they were quickly revamped.



    Here's a bit of useless info for you in the same vein........ Look carefully at the early war thin paper training pamphlets and along side each line drawing you'll see the initials TH40/41/42. That indicates that the line drawings were by THwaites - as in Warrant Officer James Thwaites of the Small Arms School Corps training staff at Hythe. Sorry if you all knew this stuff already but I often get my wrist slapped for adding these seemingly irrelevant to the question odds and sods
