It’s great to be on this forum, and I mean no flattery when I say your community guidelines are the most civilised I’ve read. (I had to remind myself what ad hominem meant.)
I’d really appreciate your help with a detective novel I’m writing. It’s set in Malaya, in the 1950s, during the “Emergency” (the jungle war against communist insurgents).
Now here’s the thing: the insurgents were using weapons and ammunition left over from the guerrilla war against the Japanese in WW2 – whereas the security forces were using up-to-date ammunition, of course.
Could someone kindly make an educated guess at what the headstamps would be for two 9mm British Army rounds: one manufactured in 1945, and another in 1955?
I’d be very grateful.
