Nice copy of the Gale & Polden 1940 dated booklet on the Lewis gun for sale on eBay, with some nice fold out pages.

 

Not mine, I stumbled upon it during a search for Gale & Polden booklets on the Thompson gun, my interest, and thought it may interest someone on this forum. I know I like people to tip me off, when things are listed that are of interest to me.

Had to look up the exchange rate then my copy (1942 7 ed.). No wonder the ouch.

 

Mine would be alot more expensive though as it would go with the Lewis Aircraft Gun I have on Gunbroker right now.

Sorry about that, first time I have seen one of those booklets, and I guess we have been sensitised to high prices in the UK, as I thought that was not a bad price. I have certainly paid more for Thompson gun booklets in the past, some of which were posted on this board.

 

Stay safe
