    Dad's MK2, M7, Red Cross Bag?

    I was cleaning and rearranging the garage again and had to move my father's footlockers. Decided to look through the box again and thought you might want to see a couple of MK2's and M7 that are loaded away in it. My dad served 30+ years and through Korea, Vietnam, and the so-called cold war.

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.  I will accept PayPal, Zelle, MO and good old checks (and cash if you want to stop by for a tour!).  CLICK BANNER to send me a PM for International pricing and shipping.

    I would describe it as a "First Aid bag", the "Red Cross" indicating first aid.

    The "Red Cross" is a non governmental, non political and obviously a non military organisation that jealously guards it's neutrality.

    I found another like yours in one of his other boxes. I guess after 30 plus years he'd have knives here. I also found a knife that had a cardboard scabbard that has "My Boy Scout Knife" written on it in his handwriting. I think that one is my favorite.

    I hope the next generation is as good a steward of the items as you are.

    The only marking I can make out are partial PATNO..... and below it are the tops of what looks like numbers. I took it out of the cardboard box it was in and put it in one of his footlockers since my garage is tore up right now I don;t have easy access so give me a couple of days and I'll pull it out again. Thank you for the information
