Here’s the drawing;

Information on the charger is given in Small Arms Committee minute No71 dated February 13th, 1918. Under ‘Action taken’ it is noted; "The Committee recommend that 10,000 be made for trial, and that D.I.S.A.A. be consulted as to the design of this trial order.

Hope this helps.

Peter

The example I had was stamped “Hinks Wells” on the back and IIRC “Pat. Pending”.
