Argentine .5 Vickers Dummy


#1

This is an Argentine .5 Vickers dummy made from a rare Kynoch contract case including designation in millimetres and bullet type (L.T. = Luminosa Trazante = Flame Tracer). Solder was applied to the bullet to keep it in place.

Information on the .5 Vickers rimless rounds made or used by any other countries than England and Canada seems to be practically unknown; does anyone have details on the ammunition used by Brazil, China and Czechoslovakia?

Very nice cartridge Fede.

I always believed that Britain only exported the Semi-Rimmed .50 Vickers.
