Hi Rene,

At a quick look “Solbre” is not an English word and is not in an English dictionary, nor does it show a return as a place name. It is certainly not a trade name that I recognise. Yet that OSC is used by the Midland Gun Co. on quite a few of their loadings although the vast majority carry a “Hand Loaded” card and I can’t find that exact style of OSC on any other British cartridge.
Midland Gun Co. did use Belgium cartridges for a short time but I have not seen a FN one before.

That’s the best I can come up with mate.

Typical Midland Chilled Shot OSC.
