MW headstamp

Hello, I recently found a .303 cartridge from 1945, which is mark 7.
I am familiar with the MF, MG, and MH Headstams but have never seen a MW. I was just wondering the manufacturer.

Cheers Hamish

Hi Hamish,

MW is Munitions Welshpool, Western Australia. It was Small Arms Ammunition Factory No. 6 and only made .303 ammunition. Operated from 1942 until 1945.
