Yes, Thompson's purchased by the British government for issue to British Armed Forces (not wishing to be pedantic but there has not been an English Army for 300 years), are covered; along with Commonwealth forces

The best discussion on the subject, although not published back when this thread was started, is 'Great Britain - the Tommy Gun Story' by Tom Davis Jr.

 

Stay safe
